In this episode of this landmark series charting the story of human civilisation, Andrew Marr reaches the Middle Ages. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Europe was little more than a muddy backwater. Vikings explored and pillaged from Northern Europe to North America. But they also laid the foundations of powerful new trading states - including Russia. This was also the Golden Age of Islam.

Art is in the lifeblood of every society, and by travelling the world to where art is made, and engaging with those who make it, this unique series expands our understanding of people, places, culture and history. The series is a selection of vivid films from locations as far apart as Japan, Mexico, India, Italy and North America. Each episode features a weekend spent in one of our great cities of art such as Venice, New York, Mexico City, Beijing and Istanbul, where we seek out seminal works of the past to show how they reflect history as much as contemporary art reflects today.
