  • 1. 
    The Middle Ages When the Roman empire collapsed, different parts of Europe were taken over by different peoples. For example… The Celts Before Roman times, Celtic peoples lived in many parts of Europe. Their descendants today live mainly in Brittany (France), Cornwall (England), Galicia (Spain), Ireland, Scotland and Wales. In these parts of Europe, Celtic languages and culture are very much alive. The Germanic peoples Not all of them settled in Germany.  The Angles and Saxons moved to England and ruled it until 1066.  The Franks conquered a large part of Europe, including France, between about 500 and 800 AD. Their most famous king was Charlemagne. The Goths (Visigoths and Ostrogoths) set up kingdoms in Spain and Italy. The Vikings The Vikings lived in Scandinavia. In the 800s and 900s they sailed to other countries, stealing treasure, trading and settling where there was good farmland. The Normans or ‘Northmen’, were Vikings who settled in France (in the area we call Normandy) and then conquered England in 1066. A famous Norman tapestry shows scenes from this conquest. It is kept in a museum in the town of Bayeux. The Slavs The Slavs settled in many parts of eastern Europe and became the ancestors of today’s Slavic-speaking peoples, including Belorussians, Bulgarians, Croatians, Czechs, Poles, Russians, Serbs, Slovaks, Slovenes and Ukrainians.
