Medieval Wizzley

Help! 


I'm an historian horrifically rooted in British terms.  This makes life very difficult when I'm trying to write history articles for Wizzley. 

I can't even whine too much about it, because my country is the one who messed up so badly historically with the rest of the world.  The 'colonials' are justified in smirking with glee at my floundering, despite the fact that my blood's all Welsh.  Hence I really should be counted with them. -.-

Back to the plot, are there any kind souls out there who can find what I'd call the Medieval Period or High Middle Ages on here?  Basically I'm after 1452-1485.  Don't point me at Post-Medieval, as that's largely the same as the Tudor Period, insofar as it starts in 1485.

Is this any use to you Jo - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_periods .

You will probably be able to tell in 2 seconds if it is any use or not.

Nice find!  Thanks!


I've found that my time period is alternatively called Late Horizon (Americas); Age of Discovery (Europe); and The Renaissance (Europe).


I have a choice of two off the list!  Thanks!

Jo, you know a lot more about history than I do.  I've been trying to find a spot for you, but have been unsuccessful.

Sorry, I don't know which one to choose, but I've ruled many of them out!


Just saw your post - yay!

Good news. The ability to find things like that, comes from me being a person who has always had more questions than answers. Smile

Any time period before the 1600's does not exist in the US - they have no real history other than that borrowed from elsewhere Wink

There's a whole nation full of First Natives want to discuss this with you, Chaz. :P

So the answer to your question is....the First Nations period.

There's a lot more history in the Americas than you have any inkling of obviously. My family hails from Europe during the early years of the 20th century, but when you live on this side of the pond -- especially in the west and/or north as I do -- you learn that there are many nations, each of which has a history of hundreds of thousands of years. Some of them were actually very highly developed very early on while our ancestors in Europe were still rattling around in the dirt.

Just saying. Wink

We of European descent tend to be fairly culturocentric. (Is that even a word?)

1485.  


LOL  Sorry, I couldn't resist.   So Middle Ages/Mediaeval is still what it's called in your neck of the woods?  Same here.
