Progress into the early Middle Ages, a period defined by the Turks. Start your exploration of this group by focusing on three major khaganates or confederations—the Avar Khaghans, the Gök Turks, and the Uighurs—which developed between the 5th and 9th centuries A.D., and would have major implications for the Islamic world.
