Everyone knows about the “Dark Ages” that followed the collapse of the Roman Empire in Europe, did other cultures have their own “Dark Ages” too?


The only ones I could think of would be the Dark Age that followed the Bronze Age Collapse in the Eastern Mediterranean and the period of turmoil that followed the An Lushan Rebellion in China which was said to have ended China’s golden age, I’m no expert in Chinese history so feel free to correct me on that one. Was there ever a Dark Age in Indian History? Japanese? Mesoamerican?
