Used as a case study for Herodotus’ tale of the vengeance of King Cyrus against the Ganges River, "The Dark Age of Herodotus: Shards of a Fugitive History in Medieval Europe" investigates the modes of transmission that carried stories by Herodotus from Greek to Latin, from the eastern Mediterranean to Rome, and from there across the Alps into northern Europe.
