European dance from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West until the beginning of the renaissance - that is from around 500AD to the beginning of the fifteenth century. Unfortunately, no dance manuals are known to exist from this period, so the dances must be reconstructed from indirect evidence such as iconography or descriptions in literature. The period covers a wide variety of dance types. Examples include the estampie, the carole and the saltarello.
