A. Beginning 711 AD for a period of almost eight hundred years, --> "Beginning ..... Moors" doesn't make sense

B. For almost eight hundred years after its beginning in 711 AD,

C. Beginning a period of almost eight hundred years in 711 AD,

D. During eight hundred years, a period beginning 711 AD, --> during should be followed by some period such as "during summer"

E. Over a period of eight hundred years beginning 711 AD, --> correct
