The Long Journey: The Cimbrians by Johannes V. Jensen

The Jolly Barbarians From the North

Rating 5 out of 10

The subject of this volume is the Migration Period in Europe around AD 300 to 700 when the Barbarians from the North approached the Roman Empire. Although Jensen recognize that the Northern cultures were far less developed than the Mediterranean cultures, still within their blue eyes was residing the Northern longing, which in due time would make North Europe superior to South Europe.
