Unit 3-Post Classical: 600-1450

Western Europe in Turmoil

  • While the Byzantine Empire survived as a center of classical culture, important changes were taking place in Western Europe.
  • Historians sometimes refer to this period of history, from the fall of Rome in 476 A.D. to the 1400s, as the “Middle Ages” or medieval period: The period between ancient and modern times.
the barbarian invasions
The Barbarian Invasions
  • Beyond The Roman Empire’s frontiers lived Germanic tribes like the Goths, Vandals, Lombards, Burgundians, and Franks. The Romans considered these peoples (and anyone non-Roman) to be uncivilized “barbarians.”
rome is sacked
Rome is Sacked:
  • In the 4th c., a war-like tribe known as the Huns moved from Central Asia to Europe. As the Huns moved into Europe, they forced the Germanic tribes to move westward. These Germanic tribes in turn pushed forward into the Roman Empire.
  • The Visigoths later defeated the Roman army and sacked Rome in 410 A.D.
