Terry Jones' Barbarians : An Alternative Roman History
by Terry Jones and Alan Ereira




Overview -
An Alternative Roman History
An entertaining rewriting of Roman history from the perspective of the Barbarians who weren t really barbaric at all
In this completely fresh approach to Roman history, Terry Jones offers us not only the chance to see the Romans from a non-Roman perspective, he also reveals that most of those peoples 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 the 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 new paperback edition, Terry and Alan travel through 700 years of history on three continents, bringing wit, irreverence, passion and the very latest scholarship to transform our view of the legacy of the Roman Empire and the creation of the modern world."
