Best Answer

There are two answers for this question, depending on how history is organized.

In Britain, many historians regard the medieval period, or Middle Ages, as a time from 1066 to 1485. They call the period from about 410 to 1066 the Dark Ages. The dates go from when the Roman Empire refused to give aid to the citizens of Britain and told them they were on their own, about 410, to the date of the Battle of Bosworth Field, which put Henry VII, the first distinctively Renaissance King of England, on the throne.

Outside Britain, and to some extent within, the term Dark Ages has gone out of use, and the terms Middle Ages and medieval refer to the time from the fall of the West Roman Empire (5th century) to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Using this definition of medieval, Britain would have the same dates.
