Barbarians Rising |WORK|


Now free from their biggest enemy, the Roman war machine looks outwards again to conquer new lands and fuel its empire. This outward expansions means the barbarians have to change tactics to curb the Roman threat.




Barbarians Rising



  • The series focuses on the struggles between the Roman Empire as it rose and fell and the various indigenous tribal and nomadic peoples on its periphery, the so-called "barbarians", cutting between expert interviews and reenactments of the historical events by a strong cast of TV actors. Primarily told from the barbarians' point of view with Rome serving as The Empire, it follows a succession of leaders across four episodes: "Resistance": General Hannibal Barca (Nicholas Pinnock) leads the army of the Roman Republic's regional rival the Carthaginian Empire in alliance with many Iberian tribes during the Second Punic War, but fails to strangle Rome in the crib despite brilliant victories in mainland Italy. After Carthage falls, a shepherd named Viriathus (Jefferson Hall) rises from the besieged tribes of Lusitania and becomes a Rebel Leader.

  • "Rebellion": The gladiator Spartacus (Ben Batt) begins a slave revolt against Rome, but fails. Later, as Caesar Augustus rapidly expands the new Roman Empire, the Roman-trained Cherusci chief Arminius (Tom Hopper) leads all of Germany in a massive uprising.

  • "Revenge": Arminius's revolt leads to Rome's first lasting defeat by a non-Roman people and halts its advance to the northeast. Boudica (Kirsty Mitchell) tries to throw Nero back into the sea to avenge herself and her daughters. And Fritigern (Steven Waddington), leader of the Goths, seeks shelter from the Huns in the Eastern Empire, but is betrayed by Rome and goes on the attack.

  • "Ruin": Fritigern's successor Alaric (Gavin Drea) serves Rome as a mercenary but is soured on their treatment of the barbarians. When he is crowned King of the Visigoths, he vows he will not rest until Rome abides by its treaty obligation and provides his people with a homeland. Part two of the episode is noticeably Perspective Flipped, with the collapsing Western Roman Empire now the defending heroes against the marauding hordes of Attila the Hun (Emil Hostina) and the political maneuverings of Geiseric, King of the Vandals (Richard Brake).
