    The Later Eastern Han Dynasty extended sections of the Great Wall of China along its Mongolian borderaround 220 AD.
    This made it harder for the Huns to attack into China, so they turned westward, attacking and displacing tribes throughout Central Asia.
    These tribes migrated further west, overrunning the western borders of the Roman Empire:
    • Visigoths,
    • Ostrogoths,
    • Franks,
    • Anglos,
    • Saxons,
    • Alemanni,
    • Thuringians,
    • Rugians,
    • Jutes,
    • Picts,
    • Burgundians,
    • Lombards,
    • Alans, and
    • Vandals.
    Rome had to withdraw its Legionsfrom other areas of the Empire, such as Britain, in order to place them along the Roman border.
    This left Britain, which had been a Roman territory since the time of Julius Caesar, unprotected.
    Marauding bands and lawless mobs raided Britain’s unprotected Roman settlements, and carried away thousands to sell into slavery in Ireland.
    Ireland was ruled by the bloodthirsty, superstitious pagan Druids.
    Thomas Cahill wrote in How the Irish Saved Civilization(Random House, 1995):
    “Romans, in their first encounters with these exposed, insane warriors, were shocked and frightened … They were howling and, it seemed, possessed by demons, so outrageous was their strength … featuring all the terrors of hell itself.”
    The Druids, from whom Halloween originated, believed that the trees and hills were inhabited by good and evil spirits which had to be appeased.
    Cahill continued::
    “(Druids) sacrificed prisoners of war to the war gods and newborns to the harvest gods.
    Believing that the human head was the seat of the soul, the displayed proudly the heads of their enemies in their temples and on their palisades; they even hung them from their belts as ornaments, used them as footballs in victory celebrations, and were fond of employing skull tops as ceremonial drinking bowls.
    They also sculpted heads – both shrunken, decapitated heads.”
