Slightly specific request but could (when you get to it) we have a podcast on the Millennium i.e., 1000. I've always been interested in what people's reactions or feelings about the year 1000 approaching might have been and how they were different/the same to how we reacted to 2000. Did people even realise it was happening? Did they fear it as the end of the world? Was it not a big deal? Or did people celebrate it and see it as a new era? Were their rumours of terrible things or was it the second coming of Christ? Or were people not very bothered? Did they think about people in the year 0 or forwards to what life might be like in 2000? I've found very little exploration of this? As a snapshot what was life like in 1000? Thanks :)
