So, I'm supposed to answer the question:
Europe during the Middle Ages in often imagined as an isolated and inward looking time in history. Defend or refute this statement.
I don't know which way I should answer it, as defending it or refuting it. I mean, on one hand, the Early Middle Ages was the black death and feudalism, but then towards the late middle ages the foundations of a modern state were starting to form. Help?
