    THE MOVEMENT OF THE BARBARIANS?

    The “BARBARIAN” attacks on Rome partially stemmed from A MASS MIGRATION CAUSED BY THE HUNS’ INVASION OF EUROPE IN THE LATE FOURTH CENTURY. When these Eurasian warriors rampaged through northern Europe, they drove many Germanic tribes to the borders of the Roman Empire.

    ———————————————————————————-

    Ammianus Marcellinus (325/330 – after 391) was a fourth century Roman historian. … His work chronicled THE HISTORY OF ROME FROM 96 TO 378

    Ammianus does not speculate on their origin but describes them( the nation of the Huns) in his HISTORY OF ROME:

    THE NATION OF THE HUNS SURPASSES ALL OTHER ‘BARBARIANS” in wildness of life. And though [the Huns] do just bear the likeness of men (of a very ugly pattern), they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the backs of their horses. When attacked, they will sometimes engage in regular battle. Then, going into the fight in order of columns, they fill the air with varied and discordant cries. More often, however, they fight in no regular order of battle, but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and then rapidly come together again in loose array, spread havoc over vast plains, and flying over the rampart, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. It must be owned that they are the most terrible of warriors because they fight at a distance with missile weapons having sharpened bones admirably fastened to the shaft. When in close combat with swords, they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they throw a net over him and so entangle his limbs that he loses all power of walking or riding (XXXI.ii.1-9).

    THE HUNS are routinely characterized by mobility and ferocity; they struck without warning and observed no distinction between combatants and non-combatants, men, women, or children. Once they had crossed the swamp, and conquered Scythia, there seemed no stopping them.

    The speed with which the Huns moved, and their success in battle, is best illustrated in their conquest of the region which comprises HUNGARY in the present day.

    Between 395-398 CE, the Huns overran the Roman territories of Thrace and Syria, destroying cities and farmlands in their raids

    BUT SHOWING NO INTEREST IN SETTLING IN THE REGIONS?

    Pastoralism is the branch of agriculture concerned with the raising of livestock. It is animal husbandry: the care, tending and use of animals such as camels, goats, cattle, yaks, llamas, and sheep.

    In December of 406 CE, the Vandals crossed the frozen Rhine River and invaded Gaul to escape THE HUNS and brought the remnants of many other tribes along with them. The Romans had no better luck in fending off Hunnic attacks than any other people. In 408 CE the chief of one group of Huns, Uldin, completely ransacked Thrace and, as Rome could do nothing to stop them militarily,

    Once the treaty was concluded, the Romans were able to withdraw their troops from the Danube region and send them against the Vandals who were threatening Rome’s provinces in Sicily and North Africa.

    About 445 Attila murdered his brother Bleda and in 447, for unknown reasons, made his second great attack on the Eastern Roman Empire. He devastated the Balkans and drove south into Greece as far as Thermopylae.

    THE HUNS AND THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

    The Huns were a nomadic tribe whose origin is unknown but, most likely, they came from “somewhere between the eastern edge of the Altai Mountains and the Caspian Sea, roughly modern Kazakhstan” (Kelly, 45).

    They, the Huns are first mentioned in Roman sources by the historian Tacitus in 91 CE as living in the region around the Caspian Sea and, AT THIS TIME, ARE NOT MENTIONED AS ANY MORE OF A THREAT TO Rome THAN ANY OTHER BARBARIAN TRIBES.

    IN TIME, THIS WOULD CHANGE

    AS THE HUNS BECAME ONE OF THE PRIMARY CONTRIBUTORS TO THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE,

    AS THEIR INVASIONS OF THE REGIONS AROUND THE EMPIRE, WHICH WERE PARTICULARLY BRUTAL, ENCOURAGED WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE GREAT MIGRATION (ALSO KNOWN AS THE “WANDERING OF THE NATIONS”) BETWEEN ROUGHLY 376-476 CE. THIS MIGRATION OF PEOPLES, such as the Alans, Goths, and Vandals, disrupted the status quo of Roman society, and their various raids and insurrections weakened the empire.

    A definitive locale for Hunnic origins but also to define the struggle between the Huns and Rome as a battle between the “noble west” and the “barbaric east”. Kelly suggests how, “for some writers, connecting the Xiongnu and the Huns was part of a wider project of understanding the history of Europe as a fight to preserve civilization against an ever-present oriental threat.

    THE HUNS WERE A WARNING FROM HISTORY.

    With their Chinese credentials established, their attacks on the Roman empire could be presented as part of an inevitable cycle of conflict between East and West” (43).

    THANK GOD TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT ELECT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS DANGEROUS, especially when it comes  to historians rewriting history, from academia and seeps into the U.S. government, into the American educational system (via common core) and into the media. When, big-time progressive liberals, professors at our major institutions of learning, world leaders and heads-of-state, and large media outlets adopt a PC viewpoint.
