 OgreCave.com - Reviews - Cthulhu Dark Ages
Although Cthulhu Dark Ages is a complete Basic Roleplay game, employing the percentile mechanics found in all but a very few of Chaosium’s RPGs, a few changes have been made to take account of the thousand year difference between this setting and that of 1920s Call of Cthulhu.
It should also be noted that the starting age for a character is fifteen years old, which although accurate for the time, does make the character feel over-skilled for his age.
The publication of Cthulhu Dark Ages was highly anticipated and sounded a resurgent note in Chaosium’s fortunes and their elastic publishing schedule.

 Spaceflight Now | Breaking News | Illuminating the 'dark ages' of the universe
When the European dark ages ended with the coming of the Renaissance in the 14th century, society was illuminated by new "stars" of science, art and literature like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, and Dante.

 The Dark Age Web
The ancient certainties of the Pax Romana lay in ruins and while the eastern emperors, ruling from Constantinople, kept the light of Roman civilisation burning, in the west that light flickered and almost went out.
And so began the period of European history known as the Dark Ages, when out of the ruins of the Western Empire grew a number of successor kingdoms, ruled over by the barbarian peoples who inherited it.
For the barbarians, this new settlement was the culmination of a period of defeat, migration and conquest known as the Völkerwanderung - the 'Wandering of the Peoples'.
