This is the official webpage of the Barbaricum Group, a group of researchers from the Departamento de Historia Antigua of the Universidad
Complutense de Madrid (Spain). The group´s activity is focused to the scientific and multidisciplinary analysis, from an Social History perspective,
 upon the historical dialectic between the concepts "Barbarism" and "Civilization", and all the circumstances that this uneasy relationship may
involve (migrations, wars, famines......but also exchange of ideas, rising of new mixed cultures, etc...). In order to this, Late Antiquity has an special
protagonism in our scientific research and divulgation activities, but we do not discard the study of any other historical societies neighter
geographical realities upon the Human experience on Earth.
