What is the Middle Age?


The middle age is a lapse of time in European history between the ancient times and the modern times. This period lasted about 100 years, starting in the 5th century when German tribes defeated the Roman Empire.

The Germans divided the empire into several smaller kingdoms. Almost all trading stops. Education, literature, architecture and art stops developing altogether. Christianity circles managed to maintain and save europe from stupidity.

In the early 9th century, Europe was united for some time. But in the 10th and 11th centuries the kings were weak, resulting in wars and famine. Economic conditions began to improve in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Trades increased and cities were built. Knowledge and art started to grow again. But wars and plagues took it’s toll. The middle age ended in the 15th century with the rise of the Renaissance period.
