        Not the same anon, but for starters, they took the whole "barbarians" from the Romans and ran with it. The Germanic tribes weren't barbarians, they were quite well developed and Tacitus was impressed with their diet, morals, and how many horses they were feeding.

          Ok but it was still a lower form of civilization, compared with Rome. This is visible in their art.
          I think you completely missed the point Clark was making.

          The Germanic peoples of Tacitus' day are not the same as the ones 3-400 years later.

            Seriously how stupid are you? Consider lactose intolerance alone, are you dumb enough to think it has no effect on your behaviour?

            I think you are coping because you were born with a double digit IQ, but desperately want to believe that you are destined for more in life. You aren't.

            You're so stupid you actually believe that people from the end of the 5th century acted the same as people during the middle of the 2nd. Regardless of religion, how they lived or how they acted. Do you think the ability to drink milk determines how a society acts as a whole? It's minimal compared to literally everything else. The only people that even survived to the end of the Empire from the period Tacitus wrote in were the Alemanni and their society by the time they expanded in post Roman Gaul was clearly very different from what they were 300 years before. They had a different society, a different religion and a different way of life.

            Central European society is more or less unchanged between the EBA and the modern era. The architecture, laws, value systems and aesthetics where more or less the same.

            fun fact about the etymology of 'collie'.
            it comes from Scots Gaelic and it means 'useful' a collie dog was literally a 'useful dog'.
            it makes me laugh to think about it. they had useful dogs and not so useful dogs.

          This.

          British historians still haven't grown out of their Romanboo phase trusting Roman narratives to a tee. Roman itself was stagnant and barbaric compared to both Hellenic Greece and its northern neighbours, the latter of which had far more advanced iron age technologies.

            The iron age was literally started by central Europeans who Romans called "Barbarians". Rome was still using bronze when those "barbarians" were using steel swords. Roman steel was never as good, first it bought its military steel from Noricum and even very late in the Empire they were still buying steel from places like Feddersen Wierde.

            Rome recieved all their technologies from "barbarians": segmented armour, gladius, late chainmail armour etc. There were also technologies that Romans were never able to reproduce such as the steel heavy plow. Romans did not have any unique innovations, they did not build on anything they got from Greeks of Cebtraal Europeans.

            As the other Anon, they are interesting only if you have a low knowledge of history or care about mercantile wealth above all else.

            >but they had superior art
            Yes, I agree. I prefer the central and northern craft aesthetic though.

            Historylet hour, holy frick.
            The iron age started at least some 800 years before Rome even became a proper city. A 1000 years before Rome became an empire. Rome for sure wasn't in the bronze age by the fricking 200 BC when they started contact with the central europeans.

            >The iron age started at least some 800 years before Rome even became a proper city. A 1000 years before Rome became an empire.
            Yes, and?

            > Rome for sure wasn't in the bronze age by the fricking 200 BC when they started contact with the central europeans.
            Rome was sacked in 380 BC already (by technologically superior force) and their early armour was bronze as were their early weapons especially spear points. Roman historical records show they bought their military steel from central Europeans in Noricum in 300 BC. They did not produce their own steel until they conquered cis Alpine steel producing cultures.

            In general, none of the technology Romans used in their military was innovated by them. They used technologies of people around them, but did not innovate any of it, it mostly comes from Central Europeans (and Scythians, ships from Phoenia pattern and since Romans did not make any advancements on them you cannot seriously claim that Romans had superior technology. The first real European advancements after segmented and chain mail armour (neither of which Roman) was Germanic plate armour in the medieval ages.

            The statement in

            This.

            British historians still haven't grown out of their Romanboo phase trusting Roman narratives to a tee. Roman itself was stagnant and barbaric compared to both Hellenic Greece and its northern neighbours, the latter of which had far more advanced iron age technologies.

            Italians celts such as Brennus had more in common in pretty much every way with Romans than with Germanics or even northern Celts. Also using this one example while all the celtic tribes of Italy got promptly stomped out of existence by Romans is presomptuous

            Even if that's true, it has nothing to do with the discussion. They are all "Northern barbarians" as Roman propoganda called them.

            >Also using this one example while all the celtic tribes of Italy got promptly stomped out of existence by Romans is presomptuous
            It's hilariously pathetic that you are defending the propoganda of a dead civ.

            Your cope is irrelevant. They lost in the end to a superior civilization. Either this is their close Indo-European cousins or a different people who is their superiors and won over them.

            Either way propogating the propoganda of losers is cringe.
