The Roman Empire called them “barbarians” – tribes beyond the fringe of civilization that live a primitive, savage existence. But they are also some of the fiercest warriors in history – men and women who rose up to resist so that they might live free, or die. This four-part docu-drama "reveals the true story of the 700-year battle for supremacy, a fight for freedom that would shape the world to come." Featuring fully dramatized portrayals of icons including Alaric, Fritigern, Attila and Geisertic alongside an eclectic group of experts and contributors, including Dr Steve Kershaw, Barbarians Rising "reveals the true history behind the legends." It makes an interesting supplement to the Fall of Rome Course
