1 Read the quote, and write a 3-5 sentence responds to the question. “ When the barbarians [the Visigoths] met with no opposition they proved the most brutal of mankind. All cities they took they so destroyed as to leave them unrecognizable, unless a tower or single gate or some such relic happened to survive. All the people that came their way, young and old, they killed, sparing neither women not children. That is why Italy is depopulated to this day. They plundered all the money out of Europe and, most important, in Rome they left nothing of value, public or private.” According to the quote, what has happen to Rome and Europe since you have last studied the area?
