History with a Humorous Perspective: How Dark Were The Dark Ages?
July 25, 2017 - 2:00 pm
The Saphire Room at The MerionOne minute there is classical civilization; the next – medieval chaos. That is the myth of the Dark Ages, Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. But the Roman Empire actually did not fall. It fragmented; and in some of those fragments, the Dark Ages never occurred. Elsewhere, civilization became a little seedier but never vanished. Yes, there were also a few places where civilization did collapse. Join us as humorist and historian Eugene Finerman gives us a guided tour of medieval Europe, from dazzling Constantinople to dismal London: the Not So Dark Ages.
