ANCIENT HISTORY: What’s a Goth?

First off, the Goths overtook the Roman Empire. But who were they? They were an ancient people, usually characterized by their tall, blond appearance. The word Goth is also used to describe someone who is uncivilized or a barbarian. It’s a common phrase, “the Barbarians brought down the Roman Empire.” One could spend a lifetime trying to decipher the exact ethnic make-up of these Barbarian groups. These ancient Teutonics (loosely Germanic) were no doubt comprised of members of their local tribe, infused with descendants of slaves from the Roman Empire who could have come from various sections of the Empire, including the Mediterranean. Basically, historically, a Goth is used to describe Northern European Barbarians commonly associated with Scandinavia and Norway.
