Some knowledge was indeed lost. Such as floor heating systems, for example.
They existed in Roman times, and were common, and then nobody used them for centuries. They had to be rediscovered.

Not accurate at all.

During the medieval period medicin improved quite a lot, a woman in labor had a far greater chance at surviving childbirth in 1000 AD compared to 100 AD.

Also: Moldboardplow
Better Sails
Compass
Threadwheels
Tidal mills
Hourglass
Blast Furnace
Liquor
Glasses
Oil paint
wheelbarrow
Buttons
Horizontal Loom
Grindstones
Forest Glass
Soap

Fuck you and your pictures.

Also, why are you comparing Egyptian and not Mesopotamion those guys were way better.

wrong

This is mostly later Medieval Period, not Dark Ages.
The Middle Ages lasted between 450 and 1500, while the Dark Age of Europe lasted between 450 and 1000, give or take.

Also, the Dark Age period only applies to central and western Europe, not to the whole world, and not even to the Eastern Roman Empire.

Until Charlemagne

OP's picture makes no distinction of those two so your comment is irrelevant although true
>>
>>289180
OP's picture is a modified version of a Dark Ages picture, which is meta culture on 4chan. Everybody knows it talks about the Dark Ages, and if he meant otherwise he should have stated so.
It even paints the period black, for Dark Age.

>>289178
I dont think urbanization and with it centralization, complexity and scientific advancement came with Charlemagne. That was later.

Scientific development was not high in Rome. They mostly used what the Greeks had done.

This.
The Eastern Roman Empire was the intellectual center of the Roman Empire. China didn't have the Dark Ages.

>>289192
In this picture as in the original picture (what you think I am dumb or someshit and don't know the original?) this supposed 'dark ages' starts at 500 and ends in 1500. That is incorrect. It's also dumb as shit. You are dumb as shit.
>>
>>289192
>I dont think urbanization and with it centralization, complexity and scientific advancement came with Charlemagne
Carolingian Renaissance
And even if that were true none of those things define a "dark age".
A dark age is something with a lack of written sources
>>

A load of bullshit.
Wrong on every level.

What would be the Afrocentrist version of this?
Egypt the highest point? Slavery in America the lowest?

This only makes my post more relevant and necessary, since I mention thats wrong.
No need to get buttblasted, lad.

The Carolingian Renaissance is only called a renaissance because people get mad at the Dark Ages meme, so they made a counter-meme, equally wrong in the opposite direction.

I am sorry I thought you were in dissagreement with me.

Have this picture of a town in holland from the 16th century as a token of my humility

>>289111
This graph hurts me. How do they measure "scientific advancement"? Also they way they've divided up time is awful too, since civilisation began before 1000 BCE, and the world didn't just have "Egyptian times", "Greek times", etc. It insinuates that at one point in time the whole world was Egyptians and they made science, then they turned into Greeks and they made more science. It was made by simpletons for simpletons.
>>
>>289111
Gross misunderstanding of peak oil.
Oil doesn't just deplete when peak oil is hit.
>>
>>289111
The map still implies the Romans were 'advancing science' at a faster rate and double that of the Greeks, and that science in 400AD was on the same level as science n 1500AD. It skips over the advancements made in the Middle East and then continued from the 12th century on in Western Europe.

What happened to Livy's writings ? How was the majority of Ab Urbe Condita Libri lost ?
How did floor heating systems disapear ?
How did the Colosseum fall to ruins ?
How did writting almost disapear in England ?
How can Gregory of Tours' grammar be so poor ?
etc etc

>What happened to Livy's writings ? How was the majority of Ab Urbe Condita Libri lost ?
Cause most Europe lacks the apropiate climate to make papirus last?
>How did floor heating systems disapear ?
Cause there is a significant change in the mentality of the Roman aristocracy?
>How did the Colosseum fall to ruins ?
Cause there is abandonment process of the monumental areas of the cities through the Low Empire?
>How did writting almost disapear in England ?
Cause the Post Roman Britain suffered a severe collpase of her system hardly comparable with any other place of the Roman World?
>How can Gregory of Tours' grammar be so poor ?
Cause the languages do evolve?

>Dark Ages as an actual thing

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Friendly reminder that the Byzantine Empire was using flamethrowers during the so-called European Dark Ages.
>>
>>290188
Friendly reminder that the Dark Ages are about western and central Europe, not all of the world.
You are stupider than the people you wish to mock.
>>
>>290174
You can tl;dr that by saying "Cause Dark Age".

They also devolve, as we can clearly see.
