Terry Jones’ Barbarians is a 4-part TV documentary series first broadcast on BBC 2 in 2006.


Around 400 AD, two Barbarian babies were born. One would grow up to become the most feared of all – Attila the Hun. The other, Geiseric, led the Vandals whom history has cast as destroyers. Jones finds out that Roman civilisation was not destroyed by the invasion of these tribes, but by the loss of the North African tax base. He sees the common view of Rome and ‘Barbarians as a result of the Roman Catholic Church popularising the Roman version of the truth.
