- the Vandals had moved into Spain in 409, then in 429 crossed into Africa - under Gaiseric the Vandals attacked everyone and took everything they could - in 455 the Vandals captured Rome, and for two weeks systematically looted it of everything they could find - the “destruction” was so great that to “vandalize” something became a recognized word in most European languages
Gaiseric the Vandal
