The Early Middle Ages D.17.11.26

25 Nov

The early Middle Ages is sometimes referred to as the Dark Ages, because of the social and economic collapse that followed the fall of the Roman Empire in the West.
The years between 500 and 1000 CE saw a rich flowering of civilization, both in the Byzantine Empire and in the Islamic lands of North Africa and the Middle East.
In western Europe, the so called Dark Ages also produced the sophisticated culture of Anglo-Saxon England, and the remarkable explorations of the Nordic people, the Vikings. Whose fearsome longships journeyed as far as North America 500 years before Columbus.
