Summary
"History will never forget their reign of terror. For nearly a millennium, barbarian hordes rose up and swept across Asia, Europe, and Africa, pillaging towns and sacking empires. But who were these barbarians, seemingly devoted only to violence and destruction, their language the battle-axe and mighty sword? In Barbarians, History explores the origins of the Huns, Goths, Vikings, and Mongols. Shot on location, Emmy Award-winning documentarian Robert Gardner uses in-depth interviews, thrilling reenactments, and narration by Clancy Brown to bring to life the powerful leaders, military strength, and overwhelming drive that kept empires on three continents in terror for centuries. Then, in Barbarians II, History follows four of the most fearsome tribes: the Vandals, the Saxons, the Franks, and the Lombards, as they cut a swath of destruction through the heart of the Roman world. Barbarians II recreates the world of these invaders through even more intense stunts, large-scale battle re-enactments, and a fast-paced, exciting narrative. The whistle of the war axe and the clank of the shield will ring in viewers' ears as these four programs bring the epochal class of civilizations to life as never before. The History Classic set contains all episodes of both critically acclaimed series, Barbarians and Barbarians II: Huns, Vikings, Goths, Mongols, Vandals, Saxons, Franks, Lombards"--container
