An Alternative Roman History An entertaining rewriting of Roman history from the perspective of the "Barbarians" -- who weren't really barbaric at all! In this completely fresh approach to Roman history, Terry Jones offers us not only the chance to see the Romans from a non-Roman perspective, he also reveals that most of those peoples written off by the Romans as uncivilized, savage and barbaric, were in fact organized, motivated and intelligent groups of people, with no intentions of overthrowing Rome and plundering the Empire. This original and fascinating study does away with the propaganda and opens our eyes to who really established the civilized world. Delving deep into history, Terry Jones and Alan Ereira uncover the impressive cultural and technological achievements of the Celts, Goths, Persians and Vandals. In this new paperback edition, Terry and Alan travel through 700 years of history on three continents, bringing wit, irreverence, passion and the very latest scholarship to transform our view of the legacy of the Roman Empire and the creation of the modern world.

Terry Jones was born in Colwyn Bay, Wales on February 1, 1942. He was a writer for such BBC programs as The Frost Report and Do Not Adjust Your Set, before joining with Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin to form the Monty Python comedy troupe. Best remembered as the nude organist, Jones co-directed Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), and directed Life of Brian (1979) and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983). Along with many Python-related books, screenplays, and records, he has written several non-fiction works including Chaucer's Knight: The Portrait of a Medieval Mercenary, Who Murdered Chaucer?: A Medieval Mystery, and Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror. He also wrote numerous children's books including The Saga of Erik the Viking, which won the Children's Book Award in 1984, Fantastic Stories, The Beast with a Thousand Teeth, The Curse of the Vampire Socks, and Bedtime Stories.
