Early Medieval era as “the Dark Ages
This mega-compilation documentary gathers together all my videos thus far about the Early Middle Ages set together in chronological order. 19th century historians referred to the early medieval era as “the Dark Ages.” Today, historians reject that term. The period after the fall of the western Roman Empire was indeed an era of strife, fierce battles and conquering kings, but it was also an era of growth, artistic achievement, and the rise of new civilizations. This is the Early Middle Ages, roughly, from the sixth century to the start of the eleventh century. It was the era of the early Rashidun conquests, of Charles Martel and the ascent of the great empire of Charlemagne. It was the period of the harrowing Viking invasions, of Alfred the Great and the Anglo-Saxons of England, and the rise of the Normans.
