From late 535 AD to 536, written records from across the world suggest a huge climate catastrophe. Dubbed the year "without a summer", the sun was completely dimmed and shadows were invisible even at noon. The cause of of the "worst year to be alive in history" has been long uncertain.
Was it a comet? An asteroid? A volcano? Archaeologist David Keys reveals the latter is to blame for the Dark Ages of famine and plague that shaped the world order of today. Episode 1 of 2.

Folks do care... And; "We..." has no borders or boundaries! "We..." only needs an easy system, for direct involvement. That system hides within "civil defense." And, it's very workable! (I found it, by happenstance!). Such, is our avenue to mechanize and empower pure / direct demos-kratos ("democracy"), within a republic. FEMA recommends secondaries systems. "We..." can build this, for comprehensive contingencies management. Note: a Vet ('73-'78, 2111/0431), asking all you other millions of Vets, scattered throughout neighborhoods, to help build the basic SOP system folks need, for clinging too. Use a logistics / liaison "Matrix" NGO, as neutral / objective, "level playing field", to help us consolidate and coordinate resources: human, material, info, environmental... Help us "muster" (from "home" [on a device]), to manage crucial issues. From a neighborhood incident management perspective. "Minutemen, Women, Kids, Elders..." Note: The OCD stated, "active and passive civil defense are integral to national security [democratic] posture." (Such was the "FEMA" of -1964-, "OCD" / "Office of Civil Defense"; also, the "Civil Defense Administration"; now, "DHS", as the "Department of Homeland Security.). Folks! "Civil Defense" ain't "civil defense"!... And, at the very least, "civil defense" can not - only be - another government agency. You are "civil defense"... With, "them", and with all others, We are born "members"! It's a basic survival thing, among humans... Using basic social systems... (Ag.,/food, water, shelter, med., fire/hazard/threat control, waste disposal, S&R, power, etc.). As, "social animals"... With "niches", and "habits"... (Atmos, Hydros, Lithos, Bios, Anthros, Exos, Techno... spheres...). FEMA states, "civil defense is emergency management." (Such is, or is supposed to be, the general mission, for all levels of DES..! ("Disaster and Emergency Services / FEMA / DHS... (..."Public Servants"! Since, "We..." has no borders or boundaries... "We..." can build this, into... A comprehensive contingencies management system! Note: we should be able, to get the DOD, and the ARC, to help us get operational... Your Vets can give us an outstanding SOP... Over night..! [Note: all the Vets in your family... Neighborhood...?]. A place to start... "national security [democratic] posture"...!...? And, to get this to work, in the structure of the overall contemporary system, "We..." average folks - normally - end up becoming "volunteers", of the American Red Cross, anyway, throughout the course of a something like a major catastrophe, like a "NCB" - "nuclear, chemical, biological war." This system would help us do our parts, far more efficiently, affectively, and effectively. To mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover. And, if we plug in the tech we need...? To bring it all into a 21st century context...? Something like the way folks managed their 1776 neighborhoods... Communities... Nation... Thusly, an opportunity "We..." are not using! I ask you; do you remember the headaches George Washington had with the "militias", during the "revolution"?... That, they made up their own minds, about who, what, why, when, where, how, they'd assist "the cause"? It's a bit like that... That is, within the "matrix" NGO, "We..." must name our "operations Section"... DES - "Support, Systems and Services." So, "We..." can lock in, all the way to NORAD...! And, "We..." can do our own polling and surveys.. While gathering all others.. Where "We..." can filter the better ideas to higher working levels.. From among us... We can not "cure", most of the issues we face... But, "We..." Can change percentages, overall... Problems, versus solutions. From the bottom... Up...! I'm asking you folks, to take a chance on this, and help "We..." build your system. (i.e., We need good tech folks to build us our own net site....) This is, our last,cane only option. Consider this, as SOS! Semper Fidelis!

I am a descendant of the Maidu and Nisenan, native tribes. Our territory would be entirely arbitrary if it weren't for the fact that it was mentioned in this very documentary! My people are from the CA valley and Sierra Foothills/Gold country. Among our oral history is a story of what is loosely translated as: "eternal night and cold pain". It happened thousands of years ago... where the sun was afraid to be seen and turned the rivers to ice. We were a migratory tribe and traveled up and down the foothills. My people stayed in the valley that year. Lost hundreds of people in the winter that stayed too long. I've always been fascinated with that story as a child and now I find out that modern science has shed some more light on it! Proud to say that I have been born and raised here and this documentary gave me a huge connection to my native land.

Also, this sheds so much light on superstition and religious zealotry.

It's a huge event where the sun disappears. I wanted to cross-reference with documents in Ancient Korea in the year 536 AD. They also stated that there was a huge volcano. It lasted until year 550 AD. What they stated the last four years of this event, was horrific.

It's believed (based on ice spikes) that the second eruption (around 540-541 AD) was worse and the one in 536 so the volcanic winter was likely extended.

@Nick R. Plus, look up an 8 million history of the earth's temperature. The Eocene lasted about 5 million years, average several degrees warmer than now and was extremely stable -- lots of grasslands. Animals thrived. Then about 2.5 million years ago something, or a perfect storm of somethings. happened. We have yet to return to Eocene stability, or anywhere near that average warmth. Instead, we have zigzagged IN AND OUT OF ICE AGES ever since. The last couple centuries have been comparatively stable, but we are overdue for another ice age plunge. About that infamous hockey stick: An easy way to lie with statistics is a graph with an exaggerated scale; make a "blip" look like a mountain. Sad most "climate deniers" and "climate realists" both are so math illiterate or incapable of looking beyond a mere century and look at the last 5 million years. Those ice age drops have all been very abrupt and steep.

Krakatoa is not a mistery. It's a volcano that erupts violently every 200 years or so. Its explosion in 536 caused 2 years of blocking sun rays. That caused crops to fail worldwide, famine and black plague. Krakatoa still active today and will explode again like it always does.
Unrequited Yıl önce
We now know that there was a volcanic one-two punch, in the form of separate eruptions in 535 and again in 540. Krakatoa (yes, THAT Krakatoa) in Indonesia and Lake Ilopango in El Salvador both experienced massive, caldera forming VEI7 eruptions around that time. Each eruption, by itself, was large enough to alter the global climate.

There were two mega eruptions. The first occurred in 536AD, likely a VEI6. Radiocarbon dating has shown the eruption had a heavier impact in Europe, the northern hemisphere, and the arctic. This means the eruption happened somewhere very north. The exact volcano is still a mystery. I believe it was Katla in Iceland but there is currently not enough data to prove which volcano was responsible. The second eruption happened in 540AD at Krakatoa, Indonesia. This was a VEI7 eruption. These two events triggered the Dark Ages. The Ilopango VEI6 eruption in El Salvador happened in 431AD, unrelating to our story but having a direct impact on the mesoamerican cultures. This would have led to famine and Teotihuacan being abandoned. Another chart mentions a Kamchatka VEI6 eruption around 577 but I have not found any data to support this

Read David Keyes book 15 to 20 yrs ago. Catastrophe just enthralled me. His deductive reasoning and assumption at the time seemed so easy to comprehend. The cultures he mentioned then rekindled my interests in history. Constantinople, China (It is said that the chinese also recorded the eruption of Taupo in New Zealand approx zero ad to 130 yrs ad. Karakatoa apparently also has a polynesian connection. One interpretation of Karakatoa is 'Warriors or guadians of of the Karaka grove'. A tree some say that was transported by maori to N.Z Aotearoa for sustainance.Some debate whether it is actually native to N.Z. Taupo-nui-atea refers to the massive lake that took the place of the mountain that previously existed beforehand as 'The great cloak of a tia' I think possibly atea = sky projectile comet/meteor. The area was encloaked by hundreds of square kilometres of pumice. Charred remains of decimated native forests ash ,stumps existed until well after polynesian discovery circa 950 to 1350ad.

I first read of Krakatoa in 1975, when I was 10 years old. Finding accounts and documentation at the time, partly due to my age & limited resources, was not anywhere as easy as it is today. Most academic adults I knew then had never ever heard of it, and those who had were historians of Eastern Culture. I did not know many, if any, geologists or vulcanologists myself. The 1883 Krakatoa eruption caused red skies across the globe for several years. Wasn't bad enough to wreck civilization globally, but still had undeniable global effects. I only learned later that was really the beginning of modern vulcanology. The rate at which Krakatoa has rebuilt itself since 1883 is astounding, to say the least! Watching the daily developments of Mt. St. Helen's as a 15 year old in 1980 was even more fascinating, if not frightening, as well!

As the recent pandemic reminded, the world of travel and trade is inter-connected in myriad ways. Given that Gupta India was a hub in the trade routes of the time, any major adverse event in Europe or China would have direct or indirect effects there, especially on a dynasty that was already weakened by Hun invasions, etc.

My guess was a volcano. When there is no summer that is a sign of volcanic activity. The 1815 volcano in Indonesia took about 8 months to be fully felt globally. The summer of 1816 had crop failures and no summer. Farmers experienced snow storms in the American mid west in June and July.

This is a rebroadcast of a much older Secrets of the Dead episode. Since then experts have suggested that Ilopango in El Salvador may be a better match for the volcano.[This is spelled ILOPANGO.] The dates match much better. But, it could also be both places. The ice cores have 2 sulfur layers, not one.

I enjoyed watching this to the fullest and it answered one of my fictional questions: Why does (George R.R Martins) Westeros have long winters? I first sought answers to the planets orbit around their star and solar activity but could not find an answer on their irregular summer/winter seasons The world where GoT plays out, may have a undiscovered highly active volcanic continent which causes massive eruptions and therefore long winters and 'the long night that lasted 6 generations' in their history. Since Arya Stark set sail to the West of Westeros, se may discover it or never return from it

Is it possible that the chaos caused by the massive eruption would be worse in the immediate area of the eruption and lessen in concentric rings in the area farthest away from the eruption? Could the initial eruption set off a domino series of volcanic eruptions in other parts of the world creating a cumulative effect of the dust? Could the reason we do not see evidence of such eruptions is that the eruption consumed some of the volcanoes? Could enough snow and ice be generated in the last 1500 years to cover up craters and other evidence in the polar regions? If tsunamis occurred in largely uninhabited area or areas that were completely wiped out, there would be few references to such an occurrence. If changes in the coastline occurred, wouldn't the evidence be on the ocean floor? Is there any coastal population centers that exist now but did not exist before 532? What about evidence in human DNA? A sufficiently large eruption could wipe out an entire civilization with the result that the DNA that cannot be identified in the modern people is the only remnant of the lost civilization? Could a massive eruption explain why places such the Australia and the Galápagos Island have flora and fauna that is not seen anywhere else? Some writers suggest that Polynesian people reached the coast of South America to intermingle with the indigenous population? Is it possible that people fleeing the devastation of a massive eruption ended up in South America?

I think this is, at least, partially true... I don't know if the volcanic eruption was the culprit behind it, but less than a decade later, a big eruption at the Ilopango volcanic complex happened... and those two were some of the biggest eruptions on the last 10.000 years... just 4 or 5 years apart About the ice, the polar caps are a result of colder climates and higher oxygen concentration in the air around 35m years ago that marked the beginning of the Oligocene About the dna... there's no way we could know, given that dna molecules are highly unstable and degrade very quickly

In 86 AD lake Taupo experienced a volcanic eruption that threw out massive rocks and trees were blown over and many were covered in water I have seen both. The atmosphere was filled with ash that was spread on to may parts of New Zealand . The date of the sound of the eruption was heard & recorded in China at that time.

Where did you get the information that Taupo erupted in 86AD? The dates proposed for it are 180 and 233AD, not 86AD. The signal is strong in Greenland but there is no signal in Antarctica in 86/87AD. It is therefore not possible Taupo erupted in 86 AD
Erl Roe
Erl Roe Yıl önce
@Aron 13 Taupo is a ‘supervolcano’ and one of the most frequently active and productive rhyolite caldera in the world. The huge caldera (collapse crater) has been partly filled by New Zealand’s largest lake, Lake Taupo. The caldera is created by subsidence of the ground surface due to emptying of the magma chamber in huge eruptions. The present magma chamber is between 6 and 8 km below the lake. Although Taupo Volcano has much more violent eruptions than cone volcanoes, they are fortunately less frequent. It began erupting about 300,000 years ago and the present day caldera was created by an eruption 27,000 years ago called the Oruanui Eruption. Between this and the ‘Taupo Eruption’ (1800 years ago) there were at least 26 much smaller eruptions which formed lava domes and spread pumice and ash over nearby areas.

@Aron 13 As New Zealand is called the shaky Islands we here in New Zealand are required to not just research our volcanic past but employ volcanologists for the purpose of looking after the welfare of its citizens. In recent times going back to 1886 when the Tarawera eruption took place there was loss of life. The Museum of New Zealand put out information on the event and much more information on New Zealand volcanic eruptions. Where they themselves gained the information I can not say.

Initially mainland Indonesia was joined by Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Australia. Natural disasters in Indonesia often cause many victims

Not a mystery if you read about something called "recurrent nova", an event during which an "external layer" (this is extremely simplified) is blown out of the sun like a nova (technically more like a corona ejection but all around the Sun). The build up to the event is a decrease in Sun brightness as the density on the outer layer increases (down to the brightness of the Moon, hence the stories of dark sun and the two moons). During the eruption, the solar system is full of "dust" resulting the apparent disappearance of all other stars (hence the stories of falling stars and dark skies). Of corse, such and eruption cause panic and severe climate changes. There is also increasing evidence that this is all related to Cimate Cycles and Magnetic Excursion cycles (with lengths of 12000, 6000, 3000, 1500, 750 and 375 years long). Below some examples (note that the shorter the cycle the weaker it is, and the further we look the harder it is to notice smaller cycles): ±375 years ago years ago (375-Year Cycle): Maunders Minimum mini-ice age (1645 to 1715), the 30 years of war (1650-1680). The Ming Dynasty collapse (1644, severe drought) ±750 years ago (750-year cycle): Volcanic event (1315-1320) caused damaged crops and mass cattle death, resulting in the Great Famine (1315-1322), resulting in mass death and malnourished/weakened people, resulting in the spread of the Plague (1331-1353) which was a bubonic plague, resulting in the weakening of empires, resulting in wars like the 100 year war (1337-1453) ±1125 years ago (375-Year Cycle): Medieval Warm Period (900-1300) made climate wet in Europe, arid in North America, may have depopulated the Great Plains of North America, then The Crusades (1095-1291), The Khmer Civilization collapse (1000-1200, experts don’t know why), The Maya Civilization collapse (900, severe drought killed millions of Maya people due to famine and lack of water), The Tang Dynasty collapse (907, crop failure and famine associated with drought), The Tiwanaku Empire (1000, drought, 10-meter drop in lake level at this time), Anasazi Collapse (1150, North America experienced a 300-year drought called the Great Drought) ±1500 years ago (1500-Year Cycle): "The worst year to be alive" (536): A volcanic eruption caused climate cooling, resulting in crop failures, then famine (weakening people), then the Plague of Justinian (541-549) which was a bubonic plague. ±3000 years ago (3000-Year Cycle): Sterno Etrussia Excursion. Late Bronze Age collapse (Hittites in 1178 BC, Mycenaean Greece in 1050 BC, the collapse affected a large area covering much of Southeast Europe, West Asia and North Africa, 300-year drought event), Indus Civilization collapse (1000 BC, experts don’t know why but think it was climate change and famine) ±6000 years ago (6000-Year Cycle): Solovki/Noah/Sumerian Excursion: Nothing to do with religion, instead massive floods all over the world. Çatalhöyük Civilization collapse (flourished 9000-7000 years ago then suddenly vanished, experts don’t know why), surviving Sumerians came to Mesopotamia (5,300 years ago), first city states (5,000 years ago), Prehistoric Egypt (5000 years ago), massive advances in agriculture like irrigation, all known domestication of animals and plants (4,500 years ago). Note that this event was so brutal that barely anything was left from previous civilizations. ±12,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle: Gothenburg/Younger Dryas Excursion: Global Mega-Faunal Extinction (remember the frozen Mammoths?) ±18,000 years ago (6000-Year Cycle): Hilina Pali/Lake Biwa/Lake Imuruk Excursion. Unknown effects. ±24,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle): Lake Mungo/Last Glacial Max Excursion: Mega-Faunal Extinction mainly in Australia/Eurasia/Africa ±36,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle): Mono Excursion: Mega-Faunal Extinction mainly in North America ±48,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle): Leschamp/Napoli Excursion: Global Mega-Faunal Extinction. ±60,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle): Norwegian Greenland Sea/Gaotai Excursion. Unknown effects. ±72,000 years ago (12,000-Year Cycle): Toba Excursion, known as the greatest bottleneck in human history. Caused 1,000 years of volcanic winter. It is estimated that less than 10,000 people survived on the entire planet. Note: Remember the 12000-Year Mayan Calendar? Well, now it makes sense.

the fountains of the deep opening up is the story of how the oceans formed. Man lived through this and can't fathom it today. The world was not Pangea + Large Ocean. It was an Oceanless Pangea and the crust fractured. The continents tore apart and the earth stretched and grew and expanded, with water trapped in the crystal lattices of ringwoodite deep within the mantle springing to the surface, rising into the atmosphere and raining down everywhere. The water settled into what we now recognize today as the oceans.

I have read one particular footnote about human biology suggesting that because human beings can eat and draw nourishment from rotting fruit and vegetables, which also hints at the origins of alcohol as a drug, the species may have endured such catastrophes as a two year long winter when crops would have failed and fruits on the vine gone bad. We can eat bad fruit, or distill it and get drunk, and sit back and wait till the sun comes out again.

Wine or alcohol was safer to drink than plain water as the process help sanitize the wine and people could survive on that. How much water did they get from wine? I’m not sure, isn’t alcohol a dehydrator? Then again i believe wine wasn’t as strong but getting drunk was possible

The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is easily the most written about astrological phenomenon in history. Called the Great Conjunction or the Chronocrator - as in time-keeper - it occurs every 19.85 years. But the alignments form far greater cycles of 60 years, 180 years, and so on. There was a conjunction in 531. This may explain the darkening of the Sun in 536 AD -- the darkening probably was multiple solar flares directly affecting weather on the Earth. Massive sunspots along the surface of the Sun will be a precursor to eminent Coronal Mass Ejections.
