High and Late Middle Ages


  
    You have already met the Middle Ages. Now you know the plural form of the term (Middle Ages) is used in English, while other European languages use the singular form (e.g. French, German and Spanish).
    You know as well, the Middle Ages are themselves subdivided into three: the Dark Ages (the early medieval period), the High Middle Ages (a time for feudalism, castles, monks and warfare), and the Late Middle Ages (the time for power of kings, trade, cities, cathedrals and the Black Plague).

Knights   At present, I know the Dark Ages and Feudalism have no secrets for you....

    Anyway, the Middle Ages lasted for roughly one thousand years and there is still a great deal to be learned....

     So let´s focus upon some topics on High and Late Middle Ages: What was medieval art like?, why and how did cities grow?, what was the peasants´ everyday life like?, was being a woman easy during Middle Ages? how did trade and craftsmanships work?....


       Here you have THE MIDDLE AGES VOCABULARY (VOCABULARIO DE USO PARA EL TEMA - PDF)  and the PPT presentations for the medieval history lessons and homework, and an useful art glossary.

The Animated Bayeux Tapestry

     The Animated Bayeux Tapestry was created as a student project while at Goldsmiths College.      Just as the historic original embroidary does, the animation depicts the lead up to to the Norman Invasion of Britain in 1066. Starts about halfway through the original work at the appearence of Halley's Comet and concludes at the Battle of Hastings. Marc Sylvan redid the soundtrack to include orignal music and sound effects.
