Into The LightStreaming Video - 2014
In this episode, Andrew Marr reaches the Middle Ages, when Europe suffered after the collapse of the Roman Empire. Vikings explored and pillaged from Northern Europe to North America, laying foundations of new trading states such as Russia. During the Golden Age of Islam, scholars in Baghdad's House of Wisdom built upon ancient Indian, Persian, and Greek knowledge. By exploring the conquests of Ghengis Khan, the adventures of Marco Polo and the story of an African King, Marr finds out how Europe emerged from the so-called 'Dark Ages' and used influences from around the world to rise again with the Renaissance.
