Episode 3: There’s no place in modern times for the dashing life of the knights, the expensive armour, the horses, and the indispensable castle. Many Imperial Knights lose their jobs and fall into poverty by the early 1500s. Peasant revolts, armies of mercenaries, and a new way to fight wars using muskets and canons make the mounted knight in his cumbersome armour a thing of the past.
i think its likely that anybody diving from 100 feet on to concrete would be dead , it saddens me that these endless stories that are repeated at regular intervals get almost no critical coverage , regardless of the dodgy storylines , fake witnesses . for example a Ukranian ((( journalist))) who had recently attended a conference in poland on ( drum roll) fake news , sometimes i think i am the only person who is noticing these things , a very discouraging realisation , micro hoaxes make major hoaxes inevitable
A 2006 Discovery Channel History Documentary hosted by Peter Coyote.
Rome's glory had shone for a thousand years. The Roman Empire had united all lands from Spain to Syria, created more prosperity, more stability and more peace than the Western world had ever seen - nothing lasts forever. In the 3rd Century AD, civil war engulfed the empire. Chaos and corruption undermined it from within and from every direction Rome's enemies gathered for the kill. By the end of the 4th century, the Roman Empire was nothing more than a fragile military machine that was no match for the invading barbarians.
The inevitable occurred in 410 AD when Rome, the historic heart of the Empire, was sacked. As the Vandals stormed the city they were shocked at what they found. Gone were the crowds of the Golden Age. An eerie silence greeted the warriors as they wandered the same streets that their ancestors had walked down in chains 150 years earlier. The inhabitants of Rome, with their empire crumbling, had been chased away, the glory that had been Rome's was of another day.
