I wouldn’t say the Dark Ages lacked cultural production and innovation, perhaps the productions of art and architecture in this period were less focused on specific cultures and more focused on religion, but then again religion can be seen as part of culture.Some unique productions seen in this time period would be the beautiful and intricate insular, or Hiberno-Sacon, art such as the Book of Kells, or the Lindesfarne Gospel book. These works are super interesting and obviously extremely detailed, and the use of animal style in combinations of other styles is actually pretty unique compared to any art work we have seen before in earlier time periods.The Celtic Knots as seen on the High Cross of Ahenny is also a unique piece of Celtic culture that makes an appearance in this time period.
