Abstract. The origins of early farming and its spread to Europe have been the subject of major interest for some time. The main controversy today is over the nature of the Neolithic transition in Europe: the extent to which the spread was, for the most part, indigenous and animated by imitation (cultural diffusion) or else was driven by an influx of dispersing populations (demic Cited by: The Barbarian Tribes of Europe. In Europe there were five major barbarian tribes, including the Huns, Franks, Vandals, Saxons, and Visigoths (Goths). Each of them hated Rome. The barbarian tribes wanted to destroy Rome. The Barbarians were destroying Roman towns and cities in the outer egdes of the empire. About 8, years ago a new form of subsistence - farming - started to spread across the continent from modern-day Turkey, reaching central Europe by 7, years ago and Britain by 6, years ago. How did new farming methods benefit Europe in the Middle Ages? There were labor saving devices so humans did not have to do all the work by hand and shifting from a two field to a three field crop rotation increased food production.
