Late Antiquity

Very roughly speaking, Late Antiquity is the period between start of the fall of the Roman Empire and the start of the Middle Ages. Yet, time periods never have very precise cut off dates. In general, therefore Late Antiquity runs from about 250 to 750 CE. It is best described as a time of major transitions in culture, politics and religion in Europe.

See the Oxford Centre for Late Antiquity or for more information.
