The Middle Ages
We often think of the Middle Ages as a romantic era of castles, chivalry, and knights in armor fighting on horseback. In reality, life in medieval Europe was much more complicated, uncertain, and dangerous than that stereotype indicates. The Middle Ages transformed Europe from a collection of far-flung Roman Empire settlements to a continent of individual nations, the borders of which are in many cases still intact today. In the process, the era formed a cultural bridge between ancient and modern Europe. This video looks at several key aspects of the Middle Ages, including the Church, the Crusades, Feudalism, Art and Literature, Science, and the Black Death.
