The 'Dark Ages' is a European concept coined by 18th-19th Century historians. South American culture was at a high and the Middle East was in a 'renaissance' period. China and India were in resurgence.

There is nothing really then to suggest this was information made by an ancient less advanced civilization. The Egyptians just copied this and who knows how many times it was copied before they got their hands on it.
Were poppy seeds in the area during that time, or available for trade? I'm sure they could have made a weaker morphine like medicine with it to help take away some pain....
