For the first time I have a grasp of what might have gone on from 410 AD to 600 AD. Speculation, but based on the sources, such as they are, and I'm ready to go along with that, at least until the concluding chapter or so. I am beginning to grasp the sheer amount of history, the multitude of generations. And that is just in our small corner of the world. Still it is my corner and I'm not finished with this period - lots more to learn about the dark earth of the towns so I'll keep an eye on the archaeology.
