Valdemar Januszczac - The Dark Ages - An Age of Light

Dark Ages Hun skull, female
Valdemar Januszczac presents The Art of the Dark Ages (400-800 AD), and I nearly didn't watch it. But I'm so glad I did, personal highlights...

1) Thoedoric, the name of the Aryan king of the Ostrogoths who would lay waste to Rome and also the name of a Welsh king of the same era in the lineage of King Arthur.

2) The elongated skulls of the Huns, and they look EXACTLY like the more radical examples of such extreme head-altering from the Paracas mountains of Peru.

Seriously, this is some properly fucked up stuff... and there were two forms of Christianity circulating at the time, the Roman one and Theodric's aryan one.
