Twilight of the gods?: The 'dust veil event' of AD 536 in critical perspective

2012 (engelsk)Inngår i: Antiquity, ISSN 0003-598X, E-ISSN 1745-1744, Vol. 86, nr 332, s. 428-443Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

The popular notion of social collapse consequent on natural catastrophe is here elegantly disentangled in a study of the dark summer of AD 536 Leaving aside the question of its cause, the authors show there is good scientific evidence for a climatic downturn, contemporary with good archaeological evidence for widespread disruption of settlement and population displacement in the northern latitudes. They then navigate through the shifting shadows of myth, and emerge with a welcome prize: strong circumstantial reasons for recognising that this widespread horror, like so many others, did leave its imprint on Scandinavian poetry and sculpture.
