    As is well known, the origins of the classical greco-roman culture are undoubtedly Germanic, when I listen to the world Greco-Roman I understand that we are talking about one the branches of the great Aryan culture.

    So, what do you think about our Mediterranean brothers and sisters?
    After reading Terry Jones' barbarians, I'm not so sure if this is correct.

    I don't mind historic Greek and Roman culture, but I do think education up here should be more focused upon our own cultural histories.

    Hersir, is Barbarians worth the read? I've thought about purchasing it before but I'm always quite wary of BBC affiliated works. I believe a TV series made in correlation with the book was released, too, but I can't find a comprehensive and orderly posting of it on Youtube.

    Yes, I think it's worth it. 12 USD for the paperback here

    It is written in a very humorous way. Havnt seen the show, but I have downloaded it from the bay.

    I think the Roman Republic was, after Germanics and Celts that is, the greatest culture in the world. I pay deference to their army and their endurance in war, same goes for the Spartans. Roman problems began when they started to rely hugely on slaves from outside of Europe and when they started to expand outside of the western Mediterranean or let's say southern Europe. From that point on, they continuous went down the drain.

    Although, as others already mentioned, history classes in our countries rely to heavily on Graeco-Roman history and far to less on our own.

    Interesting and noble cultures (mostly). I don't like the allowance of miscegenation in Rome though nor the expansion northwards.

    I.e. Hellenistic culture. It might have been good at first, as far as we are talking Sparta, Athens and Rome. But then it degenerated into a multiracial universalism that ulitmately destroyed it. Christianity is its crowning achievement in this regard.

    I respect every branch of european culture, it is all sacred and must be preserved. With each branch allowed to fulfill its destiny.

    The inhabitants of Greece and Italy are not the Greeks and Romans. Centuries of mixing with slaves from Asia and Africa diluted their blood stream to the point that they became unrecognizable. Do you seriously think a bunch of 5'4'' swarthy Italians would've beaten the Gauls? I think not.
