It's so important to study history and learn about past cultures and civilizations, if only to avoid making the same mistakes again and again. But sometimes history itself is mistaken. Historians and writers of the past did their best with the information they had, but it's inevitable that they saw things through a rather skewed lens at times. Their perspectives were often colored by the biases and prejudices of their time, fear of the unknown, and a simple lack of context. This has led to many misinterpretations throughout history. The ancient Romans' accounts of the "Barbarians" are particularly interesting to reexamine.

And on that note, click on to find out who the Barbarians really were, and why their reputation for primitive savagery is rather unfair.
