Overview

Amid the political landscape of the early 21st century, "terrorism" carries with it very specific and narrow connotations. But a different brand of terror swept through the world hundreds of years prior, as barbarian hordes plunged across European, Asian and African landscapes, toppling empires and laying waste to hamlets. Examples include the Vikings, the Goths, the Mongols and the Huns. As a production of cable's History Channel directed by Emmy Award-winner Robert Gardner, the two-part series Barbarians explores the origins and fate of such groups. In the process, it draws on elements including dramatic reenactments, incisive interviews, and much more. Part One examines the Goths, Vikings, Huns and Mongols, while Part Two looks at four Ancient Roman tribes: the Franks, Lombards, Saxons and Vandals. Clancy Brown narrates.

    This is a very good piece about the 'barbarians' from 400-1300AD

    This is a very good piece about the 'barbarians' from 400-1300AD, showing the interactions between the various tribes with each other and with the Roman Empire. It corrects much of the history that was written by the Romans and shows that the Romans, not the Goths, Huns, Vandals, etc. were the barbaric people.
