Historically speaking, both the Medieval and Renaissance periods are amazingly interesting. Knights and Ladies, chivalry and valor, courage and bravery--all with a heavy dosing of interesting fashion thrown into the mix as well. These ancient days were a time of great revival in art and literature as well, thus this time period will always be a turning point in history where ancient man turns the corner and becomes more modern as well as civilized. The culture of art, fashion, literature and architecture developed between the 14th and 16th centuries served as a model for future generations. The invention of printing became significant to the dissemination of information from one century into the next, and because of this we know a great deal more about the people of this time period than we do about their forebears.
