Ostrogoths
Visigoths
Vandals
Huns
(and in Britain) Angles and Saxons

For a timeline, see the '5th century invasions' section of this site.

This site is really good for what you need to know.

Hey Everyone,

I am in Yr 8 and have an assignment on the Barbarians who invaded the Roman Empire.

I am finished except for one question and just can't find any info to do the question. I was wondering if anyone would know the answer to this question:

Why do you think the Barbarians had no coinage? Provide specfic
examples/evidence.

If anyone know the answer or has a decent site, i would really appreciate it.

Thanks a lot. :rolleyes:

Thank you for saying thank you.
I don't know what you'll do about the question, though!
From what I read, the barbarians copied Roman coins - that was because Roman coinage was trusted - so that's why the barbarians copied it, rather than made their own alternatives.

Dacia was the ancient kingdom of what we now call Romania.
It was conquered by the Roman emperor Trajan in 106AD.
Hence 'Romania'.
So the Romanian people trace their ancestry back to two root genealogical stocks - from the original Dacians, and from the invading Romans.
We have friends in Romania who we visit quite a lot, and Romanians believe that you can SEE which of the population still have the 'Dacian' gene uppermost, and which have the 'Roman' gene dominant.
They say you can see in the shape of the ear.

An old BBC programme "The Roman way of war" is a detailed account of the Dacian campaign, conducted by Trajan, one can find evidence from Trajan's Column in Rome.
