The Middle Ages are sometimes assumed to be a monolithic period, but they can actually be divided into three distinct time frames: Early, High, and Late Middle Ages. This paper traces the progression through the Early and High stages of medieval development.

From the Paper:

"The early Middle Ages, from approximately 600 to 1050, was basically a period of economic scarcity and intellectual darkness, except for a very few exceptions. During this time, Europe was plagued by a succession of invasions that it made it very difficult for any substantial growth or development to occur. While there were a few people at the very top who consistently had enough to eat, the more common state was one of near starvation, short lives, and unchecked disease.1"
