Barbarian identity[ edit ] Analysis of barbarian identity and how it was created and expressed during the Barbarian Invasions has elicited discussion among scholars.
Wolfram observed that the significance of gens as a biological community was shifting, even during the early Middle Ages and that "to complicate matters, we have no way of devising a terminology that is not derived from the concept of nationhood created during the French Revolution ".
The "primordialistic"  paradigm prevailed during the 19th century. Scholars, such as German linguist Johann Gottfried Herderviewed tribes as coherent biological racial entities, using the term to refer to discrete ethnic groups.
These characteristics were seen as intrinsic, unaffected by external influences, even conquest. They argued that groups sharing the same or similar language possessed a common identity and ancestry.
They maintained that no sense of shared identity was perceived by the Germani;    a similar theory having been proposed for Celtic and Slavic groups.
Modernists argue that the uniqueness perceived by specific groups was based on common political and economic interests rather than biological or racial distinctions. The role of language in constructing and maintaining group identity can be ephemeral since large-scale language shifts occur commonly in history.
This core group formed a standard for larger units, gathering adherents by employing amalgamative metaphors such as kinship and aboriginal commonality and claiming that they perpetuated an ancient, divinely-sanctioned lineage.
Unfolded over long periods of time, the changes of position that took place were necessarily irregular For decades and possibly centuries, the tradition bearers idled, and the tradition itself hibernated. There was ample time for forgetfulness to do its work.
Entire barbarian tribes or nations flooded into Roman provinces ,[ citation needed ] ending classical urbanism and beginning new types of rural settlements. The Crisis of the Third Century caused significant changes within the Roman Empire in both its western and its eastern portions.
In addition, Rome increasingly used foreign mercenaries to defend itself. That "barbarisation" parallelled changes within barbaricum.
Propped up with imperial support and gifts, the armies of allied barbarian chieftains served as buffers against other, hostile, barbarian groups. The disintegration of Roman economic power weakened groups that had come to depend on Roman gifts for the maintenance of their own power. The arrival of the Huns helped prompt many groups to invade the provinces for economic reasons.
For example, in Aquitainethe provincial administration was largely self-reliant. Halsall has argued that local rulers simply "handed over" military rule to the Ostrogothsacquiring the identity of the newcomers. In Spainlocal aristocrats maintained independent rule for some time, raising their own armies against the Vandals.
Meanwhile, the Roman withdrawal from Lowland England resulted in conflict between Saxons and the Brythonic chieftains whose centres of power retreated westward as a result.
The Eastern Roman Empire attempted to maintain control of the Balkan provinces despite a thinly-spread imperial army relying mainly on local militias and an extensive effort to refortify the Danubian limes. The ambitious fortification efforts collapsed, worsening the impoverished conditions of the local populace and resulting in colonization by Slavic warriors and their families.
Instead of large-scale migrations, there were military takeovers by small groups of warriors and their families, who usually numbered only in the tens of thousands.
The process involved active, conscious decision-making by Roman provincial populations. The collapse of centralized control severely weakened the sense of Roman identity in the provinces, which may explain why the provinces then underwent dramatic cultural changes even though few barbarians settled in them.
In contrast, in the east, Slavic tribes maintained a more "spartan and egalitarian"  existence bound to the land "even in times when they took their part in plundering Roman provinces".
Thus they arguably had a greater effect on their region than the Goths, the Franks or the Saxons had on theirs. Moreover, they argued that adoption of new cultures could occur through trade or internal political developments rather than only military takeovers.
Depiction in media[ edit ].Globalization, the information revolution, and the emerging pre-eminence of the service economy have begun to undo the bonds that long defined American villages, neighborhoods, and suburbs — relationships that survived the nation's evolution from a collection of agrarian colonial outposts into an industrial global colossus.
