So you think you know everything about the Romans?
Monty Pythons Terry Jones invites you on an entertaining expedition through Roman history from an entirely different perspective that of the Barbarians. Far from the uncivilized savages they have been believed to be, many of these "non-Romans" were not barbaric at all. They were, in fact, highly organized and intelligent societies that had no intentions of overthrowing Rome or its Empire. A rare blend of scholarly research and archaeological evidence along with Jones familiar brand of irreverent humor gives this fascinating series a unique insight into the Barbarians, the Romans and the creation of the modern world.
Includes the episodes:
(Disc One) The Primitive Celts The Brainy Barbarians
(Disc Two) The Savage Goths The End of the World
