When you hear the word "Barbarian", what are the first things that come to mind? Blood-thirsty savages that constantly drank beer? Pillagers who traveled through sea on long ships? Uneducated people who always wore horned helmets? Barbarians did all these things but all in all, this image is biased. The correct term for these people is the "North Men", called so because they originated in the northernmost part of Europe. Not many people realize how these so-called "Barbarians" actually contributed to our society. These people, in their time, had actually changed the way war was fought, or at least they had a different method of it. Their works of art and literature shows us how advanced their society was. So, who were the barbarians?
