      This four-part documentary first broadcast on BBC 2 offers a different perspective on a community in which we have referred to as barbarians. Presented by Terry Jones, Barbarians will challenge your beliefs surrounding this society that the Roman and Roman Catholic’s have historically labelled as savages.

      The first part of the series, “The Primitive Celts” questions Rome’s version of history as we know it. The stereotypical view of the Celtic society is that they are barbaric and this is exactly what Terry Jones sets out to argue. He offers many examples proving this society was actually advanced compared to Rome. This was a notion in which the Roman general Julius Ceaser would make sure would change.

      Jones takes an approach with this documentary that I found particularly interesting. He manages to persuade my thinking with his compelling facts and interviews. Barbarians argues Roman civilization was not destroyed by Attila the Hun and Geiseric, the two most feared “Barbarians” of our history. But instead he offers the notion that it was the loss of the North African tax base that caused the Roman empire to fall.

      What are your thoughts? Were the Romans the real savages? The real barbarians? In reality, was it the Barbarians who lived in fear of the Romans?

      I love this series! Some of the interviews are a little painful to watch, but the info is fresh and interesting. I also like the Francis Pryor series' "Britain BC" & "Britain AD," you know, if you happen to find these ;-)

      Great series! There are so many "educated" people to reeducate now. Folks hold tight to those old Roman "facts". Everyone should watch this, And yes, history does repeat itself.

      I wonder if Terry Jones has read Tacitus. What comes across as maybe an anti-Roman bias I see as being an enlightened view on what they called Barbarians. I have watched this series many times and greatly enjoy it and his other documentaries. Easily gets a 5/5 from me.
