What people invaded the northern parts of the roman empire and why?

When the Holy Roman empires was obliterated, it was destroyed by tribes of Slavs, Vandals, and other Gothic tribes, who made a point of coming in from a north-east or north-west direction and BYPASSING the northern areas of the Empire, since it had no great value to them aside from random plundering due to it being a branch-off and was mainly used as farming and small towns; the "meat" of the Empire lay in the East and West. As such: there was, in fact, no "northern" roman empire. The empire, when it was eventually split and destroyed due to a huge number of causes -best outlined in the book The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, written by Edward, Gibbon- was separated into the Western and Eastern halves. The Eastern half came to be known as The Byzantium Empire. The Western half became known as Mediolanum. This last attempt at a more wide-reaching "civiliaztion" ended in ~480AD. After that time, it would become informally, and then formally known as "The Dark Ages."
