I thought it was interesting that the Vandals caused so much physical destruction that the term Vandalism was incorporated in our language about these barbarians who plundered Rome and North Africa from the 430's to the 530's.

Excellent.

Had I lived in that time period, I would have much rather been a "barbarian" than a Roman.
