"The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there." ~ L.P. Hartley


I'm not a medievalist, simply someone who decided to share my research on the topic. If you are looking for blogs by medievalists, this might be a suitable place to start.

The medieval period bridges the gap between the ancient and modern periods. The Roman Empire fell in 476 CE, and the Turks overran Constantinople in 1453 CE. So, some historians regard the Middle Ages as beginning with the collapse of the Roman Empire and running to the fall of Constantinople. Others do not.

Further subdivided into:
Early: 476-1000
High: 1000-1299
Low: 1300-1453

Navigation: layered by topic, and subdivided into internal and external links: I have created a separate master INDEX for internal (post) and external links. Both master indexes are subdivided by topic. Topic links lead to relevant posts or external websites. Images in the sidebar link to archival pages for post topics ("posts") and external links ("archive").
