With the preference for oxen as engine of ploughing there was no real need to construct a harness system which would allow the horse to pull a plough. The major problem with using either the dorsal yoke or the neck yoke to harness an equid to a plough is really the point of attachment. In wagons and carts the point of attachment was reasonably far off the ground, whereas for ploughs it is almost at ground level.
Also romans had horse drawn carts they already had a form of harness
And the horse was an improvement
Not for PLOWING
we are talking about the Farming techniques that exploded in innovation after the Roman empire fell
Damn that's some trivia level stuff.
And how more food was produced in that timeframe after
Well, we *were* talking about the origins of the Enlightenment
So more time means more time for thinking I'm guessing is the idea.
>When a grey is better than a green
Speaking of which.... Why are you still green?
But still the dark ages are marked with an over european cold spell. https://www.atmos.washington.edu/2001Q2/211/groupE/andy.html
Also this isnt <#372513679964635138> convo
Racism is why i am green. Yall racist against gobbo slayers
Survive -> More time -> Enlightenment -> Advances in politics
You are feeding a false enlightenment Era narrative that attempted to tear down everything that came before it. If you look at the inventions during the "Darks Ages" alone you can see that this narrative is a lie.
The CANNON Mother fucker
The stirrup imported from China in the sixth or seventh century and improved in the eighth by the Franks, and the saddle, whose design met significant improvements in the West. Both advances made the Western heavy cavalry an almost invincible weapon
Lmao taking claim for chinese advancement
Chinese failed time and time again to use their inventions to any advantage
And show me the person who imported it from China
ProTip you cannot
Europe was definitely inventing a lot during the pre-enlightenment era, but there WAS a small 'ice age' @DanConway
The article litterally says it was you nob
I was using this as an example
they are making a historical assumption
With very little evidence to support it
I thought you were a skeptic
k, I felt like it was glossed over too quickly.
I'm sure it DID have quite an effect on crop harvests for several decades
Pretty sure humans have been inventing since before they were even considered human.
It's a constant improvement process.
lol that was "the distributists" point
It also allowed storage and breeding processes for this timeframe to improve
