Spanish term or phrase: alta edad media
Etapa de la historia medieval que empieza en el 711 más o menos
soledad
Early Middle Ages, Dark Ages
Explanation:
That's what the first part of the Middle Ages, reckoned from the fall of Rome in 410 to about 1000, is called in English. We don't have a specific name for the period beginning in 711, because it wasn't England that the Muslims invaded. You would have to use a phrase such as "the period following the Muslim invasion".

Late Middle Ages


Explanation:
But ..I'd say Late Middle Ages for anything from 12/13th Century onwards. If you really mean from 711-1400c, that covers the Middle Ages in total. (Before that it is described as the Dark Ages).

High Middle Ages [sic.]


Explanation:
The expression as written says "High Middle Ages," which is a recognizable term for a specific historical period. Unfortunately, the text's defintion of the period is a couple of centuries off, as any reference work would show (even if reference works differ somewhat among themselves).

If this is from a manuscript, I would take it up with the author. If not, I would follow it with [sic.], but I would not an unauthorized term to fix it.
