So, it's pretty much accepted as fact that the 'dark age' after the fall of Rome was made up during the Enlightenment to fit their world-view.

So I have a new theory.

What if,

What if the Greek Dark Ages after the fall of Troy were also a myth made up by the Greeks to fit some other narrative?

What if the Greek Dark Ages were actually really bitchin'?
>>
They certainly were dark ages in the historiographical sense but that doesn't preclude them from being bitchin', no
>>

no the dark ages after the fall of the romans actually happend. maybe read some history books instead of getting your information from 4chan
>>
>>595575

OK, whatever. My question still stands. What if the Greek Dark Ages were actually cool? Doesn't Xena take place in the Greek Dark Ages?
>>
>>595536
The Greek dark age corresponds with the larger bronze age collapse, a period that makes the fall of rome look a simple change of government by comparison
>>
>>595607

Does that mean the Sea Peoples make Germanics and Goths look like pussies?
>>
The more I read about the 18th and 19th centuries the worse they look compared to the middle ages.
>>
>>595620
No, there were more factors then just Sea People, what I'm saying is civilization was set back farther at the close of the bronze age then after Rome
>>
>>595649

What else happened besides Sea Peoples? Was there, like, a volcano?
>>
>>595666
No one really knows
>>
>>595666
Famine.
