    It's amazing how much we don't know about the Dark Ages. No matter how much I think about it I cannot get the picture of a beautiful Rome being destroyed and turning to a cold post-apocalyptic wasteland. It's like Mad Max but with horses and swords instead of cars and guns, and the sad part is it really happened. The worst event had to have been the purposeful destruction of the aqueducts. The day the water turned off there was no going back. It wouldn't be until the mid 19th century that clean reliable water would be brought to the civilized world in quantities equal to that of 4th century Rome. What I find most fascinating is that many of the ideas, customs, and teaching of the ancient world somehow survived through the Dark Ages and made it to our modern world. What a great world we live in, I love history.
