The Dark Ages

By the year 410 AD the Romans had left Britain (well officially speaking anyway). Rome fell in 476 AD. The first Anglo Saxon king was Offa in 757. So what happened in the 350 odd years between those two dates? This period is sometimes called The Dark Ages because we are the dark about it. Here at Write Back In Time we love this time zone because it is the time of one of THE best myths ever told – The Legend of King Arthur. So wake up Merlin, grab Excalibur and wake up Lancelot and the Knights of the Round table. We want your stories about the Dark Ages!

Note: The web minions are still at work on this time period – so please check back soon. If they have not completed this section soon, they are dragon food!

Why not send us your story and we’ll add it to our Hall of Fame. If you don’t have time to type out your story, take a photo of the story instead.
