Barbarians trampled through the empire. They came in waves from wherever was home. Boors killed Romans and set buildings afire. Cities were laid to waste when tribes would roam. These ruffians lit Rome’s funeral pyre.

    This is a wonderful display of the way Barbarians were back in the day! Their claim to fame definitely has to be the destruction of Rome! They were master warriors of pure brute force that were successful for many years! Great Work!!
