Storyline

A thirteen hour series which focuses on the Germanic, Britannic and other barbarian tribal wars with Rome which ultimately led to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. This series is centered on the campaigns and battles with the barbarian tribes and extensive examinations of the reigns of little known Roman emperors and generals. The significance and structures of key barbarian tribes and the roles their leaders played are explored in detail. Territorial changes to the Roman Empire caused by unrelenting wars, plagues, mass starvation's and power struggles are presented in chronological historical context with extensive re-enactments. This series examines how the continuous wars with the barbarians and depletion of resources became a core cause of the Roman Empire's decline and eventual collapse. Written by Midge56

My first documentary about Rome
7 April 2016 | by tankaceSee all my reviews

Rome Rise and Fall of an Empire is a great summary of the whole Roman history in 13 episodes. In more details, this mini-series show us how the empire we all know came to being and why it fell at the end. To see the civilization who is the basics for our own who it worked was a big experience for me. As it is visible from my summary, this was my very first documentary about the Roman Empire and it open my eyes to its greatness and flaws, which ironically mirrored our own. I am Greek and here the idea about religion is that it is flawless, perfect and the people who killed Jesus were horrible and in our history books it is even worse, for real. The Romans are showed as the enemy of Christianity and when they converted they became better.Are you mental me? So you can see why this series had a lasting impression on me. With out this I may have not become a history buff and be in the end ME. But I digress all in all it is a good documentary series and you should definitely watch it.You will after remember it with happiness.
