Description

Newark presents a lively account of The Barbarians , as depicted in surviving contemporary literature and in artifacts from those days now shrouded in myth and legend. Through a narrative reconstruction of battles, campaigns and sieges, the awesome leaders, such as Attila and Alaric, come to life. The Barbarians includes 19th-Century prints that illustrate the concept of the "destructive barbarian" held over the centuries. Recent scholarship provides a different viewpoint of these barbaric peoples who roamed Europe for almost 1000 years. Fine color plates depict this historical update without destroying the popular image of the Dark Ages.
