About

Overview

The term "Middle Ages" generally refers to the nearly 1,000-year long period between 500 and 1450. The culture and lifestyle in the medieval world vary wildly depending on the specific area and the exact point within this ancient period in human history—an era that predates what is typically represented at Renaissance fairs by at least a century.
