The Eighth Interval is the period of time in Pernese history that began at the end of the Eighth Pass and ended at the beginning of the Ninth Pass.  It spanned the Turns 2058AL through 2508AL.

It is also known as the Second Long Interval.

During this time belief in Thread diminished and the dragonrider's were seen as useless and just using resources. This was in part due to the unexplained (at the time) abandonment of all the weyrs except Benden Weyr.
