I think it is likely.

And that was one bad ass m.f. According to reports, it was so f'n loud, that the victims lost their hearing before the actual devastation occured. Krakatoa was also a super volcano which had, like in the report, had devastated a large area around the world.

No, a series of comet showers and impacts began the Dark ages...

This article about Minoan culture says that it is possible that the socalled greek dark ages were concurrent with the eruption of a volcano...

[link to en.wikipedia.org]


also note from wiki

The calendar date of the volcanic eruption is extremely controversial; see the article on dating the Thera eruption for discussion. It often is identified as a catastrophic natural event for the culture, leading to its rapid collapse, perhaps being narrated mythically as Atlantis by Classical Greeks..

That article contains many tidbits!



The dramatic skyline in Edvard Munch's The Scream (1893) is thought to be based on the global optical effects caused by the eruption and seen over Oslofjord, Norway.

The Dark Ages were brught about by the Germanic invasions of what was left of the Roman Empire. The German tribes destroyed the civilization that was the Empire.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79958


Some speak of this and much more:

Wars, Pestilence and Witches

It was a warm, clear afternoon in the capital. The bustle of metropolitan commerce and tourism filled the streets. Small sailing vessels dotted the sheltered waters within sight of the government buildings, riding on a soft southerly breeze. The Sun sparkled on the gentle swells and wakes, lending a luminous glow to the poppies and tulips nodding in the parks along the water's edge. All was in order.

But suddenly, the sky brightened as if with a second, more brilliant Sun. A second set of shadows appeared; at first long and faint, they shortened and sharpened rapidly. A strange hissing, humming sound seemed to come from everywhere at once. Thousands craned their necks and looked upwards, searching the sky for the new Sun. Above them a tremendous white fireball blossomed, like the unfolding of a vast paper flower, but now blindingly bright. For several seconds the fierce fireball dominated the sky, shaming the Sun. The sky burned white-hot, then slowly faded through yellow and orange to a glowering copper-red. The awful hissing ceased. The onlookers, blinded by the flash, burned by its searing heat, covered their eyes and cringed in terror. Occupants of offices and apartments rushed to their windows, searching the sky for the source of the brilliant flare that had lit their rooms. A great blanket of turbulent, coppery cloud filled half the sky overhead. For a dozen heartbeats the city was awestruck, numbed and silent. [link to www.sott.net]
