For intros to the history and culture, a good historical textbook is Medieval Europe. A Short History, by C. Warren Hollister, 10th ed. revised by Judith M. Bennett (McGraw Hill, 2006). For a more synthetic approach to cultural history, I would recommend Jacques LeGoff's Medieval Civilization (Blackwell, 1988). Each of these (and esp. the Bennet/Hollister) will have good bibliographies if you want to go further.
Hope this helps!
I just got a book on ligatures at a tag sale. Very helpful when reading 15th & 16th c. books. Imagine, someone basically "threw it away" for $2.00.
