What if we weren’t living in 2021? What if we were really living in…1724?

That’s the premise behind the “Phantom Dark Age” theory, which claims that Holy Roman Emperor Otto III inserted 300 years into history that never even happened.

Why would Otto have done that? How did he pull it off? Is this a revolutionary re-ordering of all of human history, or… just a bit dumb?

We explore the apparent blank spaces in early middle ages history – and the minds of the guys who thought this stuff up.
