John:

The ancient Greeks did not take the same egalatarian view of the world

Many anthropoligists would be shocked at the term barbarian. In fact,
the residents of 'britain' and the Celts were considered an advanced
civilisation. It's a skewed version of history taught in schools that
has lead to people romanticising the Greeks and Romans and calling the
peoples of 'britian' barbarians.
