- The Early Middle Ages, also called the Dark Ages, from 476 to 1000 AD.
- The High Middle Ages, from 1000 to 1300.
- The Late Middle Ages, from 1300 to 1453.
The dates vary to some extent with according to the historian, with the beginning dates being 400, 410, 476 or 500, and the ending dates being 1400, 1453, 1492, or 1500.
