This assessment MUST be typed (11 or 12 point font; Times or Calibri is best), 1.5 spacing and possess good grammar, spelling, and a clear, organized thought-process.
In the first centuries since the coming of “the Barbarians” out of central Europe, it appeared that the previous understanding of stability and “nation-state” had been eradicated. Yet, by the 600-700 period, a few strong, former, tribes had gained control of old Gaul, the Iberian peninsula and the island of Albion.
