The earliest accurate accounts which we have of the Germans as a nation begin with the year 113 before Christ. In that year there appeared on the north-eastern frontier of Italy a warlike people named Cimbri, who probably came from the countries which are now Sleswick and J utland. They do not seem at first to have had any design on the capital itself, but directed their attacks against Noricum, a province of Rome. Papirius Carbo, the consul, having marched into that country, addressed an angry remonstrance to the invaders, who endeavoured to pacify him by declaring (what was probably the truth) that until that moment they had never heard of any alliance between the people of Noricum and the Romans. As this explanation was graciously received, the Cimbri were astonished at finding their position attacked the next day by the whole Roman force: but theyr defended themselves with their accustomed bravery, and after ah obst1nate engagement cut the army of Carbo to pieces.
