Sorry, No Picture Yet! In 406AD, Vandals from their Scandinavian homeland invaded Gaul forcing a Roman withdrawal from England. The Vandals were a fierce destructive tribe that made their way to Spain around 409AD. Because of the expanding Visigoths in Spain, Gaiseric the King of the Vandals in 429AD ferried his entire people across the Strait of Gibraltar so they could settle and plunder the rich Roman provinces of Northern Africa. By the year 439AD the Vandals had captured Carthage and established their empire. Shown here is Roman ruins in Algeria that survived the Vandals invasion of North Africa. RB NR CO
