The history of the Western continent began in the first century AD with the rise of the Byzantine Empire in the East. The Byzantine Empire fell after AD 476, and western civilization began to redevelop in terms of literacy and organization. The Christian religion was slowly reasserting itself throughout Western Europe. It was not until the Viking Age that the Europeans began to explore and conquer vast regions of the world. These were important stages in the history of Western civilization.

The Western History Association also encourages respectful treatment of everyone. The Association rejects sexual harassment and discrimination in any form.
