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

2018-10-30 02:14:44 UTC  

And the horse was an improvement

2018-10-30 02:14:52 UTC  

Not for PLOWING

2018-10-30 02:15:19 UTC  

we are talking about the Farming techniques that exploded in innovation after the Roman empire fell

2018-10-30 02:15:37 UTC  

Damn that's some trivia level stuff.

2018-10-30 02:15:43 UTC  

And how more food was produced in that timeframe after

2018-10-30 02:15:49 UTC  

Well, we *were* talking about the origins of the Enlightenment

2018-10-30 02:16:09 UTC  

So more time means more time for thinking I'm guessing is the idea.

Racism is why i am green. Yall racist against gobbo slayers

2018-10-30 02:20:28 UTC  

Survive -> More time -> Enlightenment -> Advances in politics

2018-10-30 02:21:52 UTC  

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 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

2018-10-30 02:22:13 UTC  

Lmao taking claim for chinese advancement

2018-10-30 02:22:37 UTC  

Chinese failed time and time again to use their inventions to any advantage

2018-10-30 02:22:55 UTC  

And show me the person who imported it from China

2018-10-30 02:23:00 UTC  

ProTip you cannot

2018-10-30 02:23:10 UTC  

Europe was definitely inventing a lot during the pre-enlightenment era, but there WAS a small 'ice age' @DanConway

2018-10-30 02:23:14 UTC  

The article litterally says it was you nob

2018-10-30 02:23:27 UTC  

I was using this as an example

2018-10-30 02:23:40 UTC  

they are making a historical assumption

2018-10-30 02:23:54 UTC  

With very little evidence to support it

2018-10-30 02:24:08 UTC  

I thought you were a skeptic

2018-10-30 02:24:39 UTC  

@Fitzydog Im not disagreeing with that

2018-10-30 02:25:10 UTC  

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

2018-10-30 02:25:24 UTC  

Pretty sure humans have been inventing since before they were even considered human.

2018-10-30 02:25:39 UTC  

It's a constant improvement process.

2018-10-30 02:25:40 UTC  

lol that was "the distributists" point

2018-10-30 02:25:58 UTC  

It also allowed storage and breeding processes for this timeframe to improve
