This acclaimed multi-million dollar four-part series shows the rise of the tribes of a primitive culture on the fringe of northern Europe to become the heirs of the Roman Empire.

For a long time the view of the Germanic “people of many peoples” was distorted by the Germanic cult of the 19th century and the Nazi dictatorship. Due to new methods and discoveries, research is now able to present a different picture of the Germanic tribes. Many clichés about the “barbarians” of the North have to be discarded as myths.

The linchpin of Germanic history is the conflict with the Roman Empire. Since the age of Caesar this Roman-Germanic conflict was characterized not only by fierce battles but also by phases of co-existence and cooperation. The Germans dug the grave of the Roman Empire, but were also the preservers of the Roman legacy.

The series breathes new life into the little known world of the Germanic tribes. We see how they lived, fought and worshipped their gods. Intricate 3D animation shows how they built their settlements, buried their kings and vanquished their enemies. Roman cities such as the ancient Cologne, home of the Romanophile Germans, and the Roman limes, the border to free Germania, are also reconstructed through magnificent computer graphics and full cast reenactments. This entertaining and informative DVD presents the definitive history of the Germanic people.

This is a 2 DVD set!
