Format: Paperback
The scholar who wrote this history had to be a detective because the Dacians (depicted on the famous Column of Trajan) didn't leave written records...The author is a fastidious historical detective and also a phenomenal storyteller. I knew that I couldn't take "the conqueror's word" for gospel but had no inkling of the importance of the Dacians, the ancient people whose productive and civilized society and interface with the Romans, Greeks, etc. is illuminated here...The book has an old-fashioned and modest, nicely produced look but it's really a BIG book because after reading it the puzzle of Europe and the Balkans will fit together in your mind.

An incredible book on a unique and fascinating empire. One of my all time favorite history books I have read that focuses on the largely forgotten history of the Dacians who were an astounding civilization that is well worth reading about.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Grumeza does a good job of assembing his evidence but his explanations are more than a bit jingoistic. I have a strong interest in Dacian history and do appreciate his fine job of detailing all of the archaeological findings, but he falls into the same trap as many other historical writers of southeastern Europe: he uses the findings to promote a nationalistic agenda. Very good information, but one must read Grumeza's inferences with a very large grain of salt.
