Scope

This task force covers military history from roughly 500 to 1500. More specifically, its scope begins with the fall of the Roman Empire and ends just before the development of the rifle and the Age of Discovery. Although this period is generally regarded as an era of European history, other areas (such as the pre-Columbian empires, the expansion of Islam, the Mongolian Empire, and so forth) are also welcome.
