TLTP 014 – Apocalypse Then

Let me take you on a journey through time, many Tuesdays ago…

This month on The Last Tuesday Project we take a closer look at the so-called Dark Ages (more accurately known as the Early Middle Ages). Alex asks Hayley and Shaun to look into something which, on the surface, seems a little ludicrous – did a comet have anything to do with those “Dark” times? In true clickbait style, what we find out may surprise you…

We also investigate the origin of the term “Dark Ages”, and what exactly constitutes a Dirty Snowball?



Our next TWOsday episode, Episode 14a, will be released on 12th September.
