Of course the corollary to this is.... that history stops when not much happens, if everything is pootling along ok why bother recording it? 746 was very much like 745, the king's chilblains worsened....Golden ages occur in the future or are forgotten about. Dark ages serve as warnings and are lengthened.....

I might remind you that the king's chilbains are rather important if he is a sole and therefore a capricious ruler. But a good point about Dark Ages. It should be remembered though that the Greeks knew nothing about their Dark Age, that was an artefact created by modern historians, but everyone from Gildas onwards was only too aware of the European ones. Or so the copies said.
