Further, describe the achievements and downfall of the Carolingian dynasty. *Important: a common error: Please use only the material provided in class this week to answer this question. The idea is to discuss the sources provided. Eventually, you will be required to do outside research on responses, but for now just use the sources provided.
Please reply to at least one other response from your classmates with an affirmation of something you liked in their response, and why you appreciate it. This could be a strong point they made, a source they used, how they formatted the response, etc. This response should be at least 3-4 sentences in length.

This is a graded assignment so be certain to include a substantive answer that is clear and focused. Please be sure to support your answer with quotes and analysis from the readings and the films. All sources must be cited in Chicago-style citations and specifically in the notes and bibliography system. Again as a general guide, your response should be at least several paragraphs in length, and discuss at least several of the sources. Your responses also must include a bibliography. Please see “Discussion Guidelines, Rubric, and Chicago-Style Citations” in the course logistics modules for examples, expectations, and how to do Chicago-style citations.
