Published to coincide with the major new BBC series, Terry Jones' Barbarians takes a new approach to the Romans.

Roman history is largely understood for the advent of sophisticated road systems, the modern-day calendar and drainage, but this book examines the other face of the Empire.

This original and fascinating study does away with the propaganda and opens our eyes to the contribution towards civilisation of people outside of Roman control.

Terry Jones and Alan Ereira look at the way that the Romans - far from civilising societies - often destroyed much of what they found.
