Terry Jones' Barbarians takes a completely fresh approach to Roman history Not only does it offer us the chance to see the Romans from a non Roman perspective it also reveals that most of those written off by the Romans as uncivilized savage and barbaric were in fact organized motivated and intelligent groups of people with no intentions of overthrowing Rome and plundering its Empire This original and fascinating study does away with the propaganda and opens our eyes to who really established the civilized world Delving deep into history Terry Jones and Alan Ereira uncover the impressive cultural and technological achievements of the Celts Goths Persians and Vandals In this paperback edition Terry and Alan travel through 700 years of history on three continents bringing wit irreverence passion and scholarship to transform our view of the legacy of the Roman Empire and the creation of the modern worl First of all I loved this book It's really well written funny without being goofy and fully loaded of references so you can check the facts that appear within Having said that it also has a strong point of view and it spills from every and each pageIf you read the book you'll get three conclusions Romans were an overtly cruel arrogant and belligerant society that lived on sacking and looting its neighbors The Catholic Church is an intolerant and fanatic group that provoked wars destroyed culture and kept most of the bad customs of the Roman Empire All that we know about what Romans and the Church called barbarians comes from Roman and Catholic sources which are at least skewed and sometimes pure propagandaSome of these opinions might agree with what you already thought some might not Be prepared to think about what you think you knew about those so called barbarians celts greeks persians parthians germans vandals goths and the huns
