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.

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