  Outline and Proposal   Dark Ages of the Roman Empire   I. the Dark Ages were a time in history when the population was declining, and there was little literature or other arts. It gave way to a more enlightened time. The Roman Empire collapse, pandemics of the plague broke out and extreme climate changes produced a decline in agriculture, depopulation and the breakdown of society.    The Romans slowly lost their control of the empire as other, stronger groups moved through the area. There were many battles, and the Romans were defeated.    Charlemagne takes charge    Charlemagne led the Frankish people through Italy, and then continued west. He established what France became, and he helped spread Christianity. II. Events that Led to the Advancement    The collapse of the western Roman Empire led to the beginning of the Dark Ages.     As the Roman Empire fell apart, the new groups of people scattered across the land. They were uneducated people who spoke different languages, and they replaced the more civilized Romans. III. Effects of Advancement    The Byzantine Empire continues to rule    In spite of the fighting going on around Western Europe, the Byzantine Empire continued to hold their land for another 200 years.    The Bulgarians led attacks along the Black Sea and began establishing a powerful rule.     A Rise in Islamic Victories    Muslim people began moving into what had been Roman territory in the past. Their influence spread quickly and they took over many lands. IV. Evolution of the Advancement     Education begins to rise again in the Roman Empire    Life settled down some and after the fighting and death of so many people, those who were left began to focus on education once again.    Christianity is on the rise.     As Christianity spread through the lands, the people began to settle down. The lands settled firmly into their own kingdoms, and the fighting died down for a time. It was considered the end of the ―Dark  Ages‖.   V. Conclusion    Charlemagne‘s reign reinvigorated Europe. He unified much of the west, forged an alliance with the church, and spread the cross. The emperor used the idea of the Roman Empire to provide his subjects something to achieve and believe in. He sponsored education, art, and architecture. Most importantly, Charlemagne reformed the economy    The Dark Ages ended with the Crusades. The Crusaders returned to Europe with goods and technology that expanded European knowledge and created a demand. This demand revived a dormant economy and learning. The Medieval Warm Period led to population increases and urbanization as crops thrived. By the middle of the fourteenth century, Europe was humming along and the Dark Ages a distant memory.  Add Bibliography here!   What does the term   the  Dark Ages   mean?

Outline and Proposal  The fall of the Roman Empire was due to the decline of traditions, culture, economics, and creativity of the people during that time. The Roman Empire became mismanaged to the point that ―barbarian‖ incursions caused the collapse of the empire. Without the security of the empire people were forced into survival mode, meaning that people had to work to eat and keep a roof over their heads, education, philosophy, all of the higher arts were next to impossible to maintain. The collapse of the empire saw great death, but even more migration. This scattering and need for survival created what we know as the Dark Ages. Much knowledge was lost as a result of the plunder, deaths, and the migrations. Charlemagne (Charles the Great) became master of Western Europe. It was falling into decay when Charlemagne became joint king of the Franks in 768. Except in the monasteries, people had all but forgotten education and the arts. Boldly Charlemagne conquered barbarians and kings alike. By restoring the roots of learning and order, he preserved many political rights and revived culture. Charlemagne‘s grandfather was Charles Martel, the warrior who crushed the Saracens. Charlemagne was the elder son of Bertrade and Pepin the Short, first ―mayor of the palace‖ to become king of the Franks. Although schools had almost disappeared in the Eighth century, historians believe that Bertrade gave young Charles some education and that he learned to read. During his 46 year reign, he sent out 53 of them. He moved his armies over wide reaches of country with unbelievable speed, with every move planned in advance. Before a campaign, he told the counts, princes, and bishops throughout his realm how many men they should bring, what arms they were to carry, and even what to load in the supply wagons. These feats of organization and the swift marches would influence Napoleon. But more importantly, his organizing abilities would also serve him well when organizing the governing districts within his empire. By 800, Charlemagne was the undisputed ruler of Western Europe. His vast realm covered what are now France, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It included half of present-day Italy and Germany, part of Austria, and the Spanish March (―border‖). The broad March reached to the Ebro River.  After establishing the seat of government at Aix-la-Chapelle  — the new Jerusalem with a new David at the helm  — Charlemagne restored much of the unity of the old Roman Empire and paved the way for the development of the Holy Roman Empire.   ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY What Does The Term The Dark Ages Mean?

What Particular Impact Did Ireland Ha Maurice Taylor DeVry University Caselli, G. (1998) The Roman Empire and the Dark Ages. London: Peter Bedrick Books Caselli is among the many scholars holding the perspective that the term  ‗Dark Ages‘ refers to the due period within Europe immediately after the decline of the Roman Empire. It is within this period that barbarian Huns,  Vandals, and Goths were swept to Europe from both the east and north. They later destroyed most of the fine buildings as well as works of art which were in existence during the Roman times. It is also within these Dark Ages that due knowledge survived among different monasteries as schools were very. Most of the old crafts and arts were destroyed or lost. This remains the major reason why the time was termed as the ‗Dark  Ages‘. The barbarians did not conquer the east ern Roman Empire where the arts flourished. People held the thought of making fine art works in different regions of the world. In the 1000s, Europe slowly started recovering from the artistic darkness while knowledge was lost within the ancient Greeks and Romans and later realized. Caselli observes that there is plenty of new and interesting material to learn from the dark ages. France, J., DeVries, K. (2008) Warfare in the Dark Ages.
