Terry Jones Seeks to Bust the Barbarian Myth

Ex-Pythoner Terry Jones hopes to dispell the myth of barbarism in his new book Terry Jones' Barbarians. The London Times provides a preview.

The Romans named everyone who did not speak their language "barbarian." This included Spaniards, Britons, Gauls, Germans, Scythians, Persians, Syrians and others. In his book, Terry Jones shows that the Romans were wrong.
