July 8, 2013

Podcast

Today special guest Tim O’Neill,  medievalist and Quora’s resident historian, explains that in the medieval period (500-1500 A.D.), rather than being the Dark Ages, was a time of great technological advancement. If you appreciate the printing press, clocks, eye glass, or modern agriculture, then you have the Middle Ages to thank.
