Incidentally, if anyone wants to discuss Diocletian's merits and demerits as an emperor, the relevant thread is my poll titled 'Favourite Emperor of the Crisis/Tetrachic Periods'. We've been discussing Diocletian a great deal in that thread. Of course, the ill-educated and butthurt comments of hunnic traveller are not welcome.

Diocletian, you are now suspended for two weeks. Use that time to reconsider how you relate with other members of our community. If you continue, you are facing a permanent ban.

The idea that the Huns provided a cultural basis for the Medieval Europe, actually has merit in it, for several reasons.

BUT, only if we calculate with added centuries, something like the Phantom Time Hypothesis from Heribert Illig, but instead of 297 years of added history, it makes more sense to calculate with 532 years. That is the amount of years what you need to keep the calendar, from an astronomical perspective, consistent. It creates an interesting line of events. If anyone still interested in this thread, would be great to talk about it.

Another thing. Genetic studies are really interesting in this topic also, but it is still hard to grasp on the connection between cultures.

There was a study 2 years ago about genetic profiling of the people of the Magyars, those who came in the the Carpathian Basin in the end of the 9th century. It seems like that the Conquest was done by an armed nobility, and it was more like a ruler class was taking over, rather than a population went there to settle.

For such changes it is quite hard to determine the connections. The cultural changes could be subtle or stronger, and the genetic changes are virtually non existent.

As is often the case - Visigoths and Arabs/Berbers in Hispania
