Barbarians!is Steven Kroll's introduction to Barbarians in a picture book format.

The book is divided into four sections, the Goths, the Huns, the Vikings, and the Mongols. Each section describes the leaders, territories, relationship with Rome, culture, successes and ultimately demise of each group.

The format was particularly helpful for comparing and contrasting the various groups. The maps and timeline were a great tool for understanding which groups lived where, when. I also liked the picture of the Nine Worlds of the Norse World.

This is the type of resource I've been looking for as an add on to a Middle Ages curriculum.
