THE HISTORY

Spanning from the 5th to the 15th century, the Medieval era (also known as the Middle Ages) emerged after the decline of the Western Roman Empire and preceded the Renaissance and Age of Discovery. As the middle segment of Western history, which includes classical antiquity and the modern period, the Medieval period is further divided into Early, High, and Late periods. This time period was marked by the rise of manorialism, where peasants in villages were obligated to pay rent and perform labour services to nobles, as well as the practice of feudalism, in which knights and lower nobility provided military service to their Lords in exchange for land rental rights.
