And they make such nice decorative Easter eggs too.
27 November 2010 | by (Deming, New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

Before watching this episode, I, who know nothing, was trying to figure out where the "Dacia" of "The Dacian Wars" was located. My intuition led me somewhere to the north of Macedonia, not too far off as it turned out.

The Dacians lived on the border of Roman territory about 40 AD, in which is now Rumania and Bulgaria. They were always causing trouble, staging raids into what was then Roman Moesia. This irritated the Romans no end.

But the Dacians were tough customers with a charismatic leader whose name I can't remember, and couldn't spell correctly even if I did remember.

The leader of the Romans in that region finally struck a bargain with the Dacians, agreeing to pay the barbarians a certain amount of money if they would only stay on their side of the border. It seemed to be working. Even a peace you have to pay for is cheaper than a long and unfocused war.

Back in Rome, however, the politicians decided that the agreement was a blot on the Roman escutcheon. Our honor does not permit us to be extorted -- that sort of thing. So huge battles ensued. They ended ambiguously, as such wars are wont to do.

I wish the next battle would take place somewhere in the Circum-Mediterranean. I'm being worn down by the dark dank forests of Lithuania.
