Promotional Information

An entertaining rewriting of Roman history from the perspective of the 'Barbarians' - who weren't really barbaric at all!

About the Author

Terry Jones is best known as a member of Monty Python but he has also written four books on medieval England: Chaucer's Knight, the highly acclaimed Who Murdered Chaucer?, Crusades and Terry Jones' Medieval Lives, which accompanied a major television series he presented in 2004. He is the author of several children's books including Fairy Tales and Fantastic Stories, The Knight and the Squire and The Lady and the Squire. He has directed several feature films: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Life of Brian, The Meaning of Life, Personal Services, Erik the Viking and The Wind in the Willows. Terry presented the four-part television series Barbarians in 2006. Alan Ereira has worked as an award-winning producer and writer of history programmes on radio and television for over 40 years, and has collaborated with Terry for ten years on a number of historical films. His previous books include The People's England, The Invergordon Mutiny, The Heart of the World and (with Terry Jones) Crusades and Terry Jones' Medieval Lives.

Reviews

I have enormously enjoyed this book - it is very lively and really does get to grips with perceptions of the Barbarians. It's just what we need to readdress the balance and to put the Romans in their correct perspective. -- Barry Cunliffe, Professor of European Archaeology, University of Oxford
Jones laces the latest academic research with his own increasingly avuncular humour. Who says history can't be fun? In the hands of Professor Jones, how could it be anything else? -- Observer
I wish all historical books written by non-historians were so informed, and all books by historians so well written. -- Dr Walter Pohl, Head of the Institute for Medieval History Research, Vienna Academy of Sciences
