Barbarians: Secrets of the Dark Ages

History Documentary hosted by Richard Rudgley, published by Channel 4 in 2002 - English narration



Information
------------------------------

Rome is falling... It is the time of the barbarians. In Secrets Of The Dark Ages, Richard Rudgley goes in search of evidence of the barbarians of the dark ages, people whose names have for 1500 years been bywords for mindless brutality: the Huns, the Vandals, the Goths. The real truth about the barbarians who marched across Europe during the Dark Ages is more shocking than what you may know!
The books tell us that the barbarians created nothing worth having. But this programme shows us that this was far from the truth, that the so-called barbarians created the modern map of Europe, that they were often tolerant and far seeing peoples, that they created great art and democratic values, that the barbarian legacy lives on in us today.
See how the sturdy walls and gorgeous mosaics of the Roman Empire, centuries in the making, were swept away almost overnight by marauding tribes. Witness their bold new style of warfare, lightning fast and unforgiving in its ferocity. Step inside the camps of these nomadic peoples, whose aggression was generally motivated by greed. Yet the same feral instincts which drove their conquests also fuelled brilliant innovations, like sophisticated farming techniques and sleek sailing vessels that redrew the boundaries of the known world.
This series will reveal their revolutionary fighting styles, and demonstrate what their greed-inspired aggression achieved for them. Where did they come from? Who are their descendants? Are any of their techniques and inventions still used? It is a journey that takes us all across Europe, from the cold northern seas off Scandinavia to the heart of the Great Hungarian plain - and Richard discovers the secrets of forgotten empires, and of mighty clashes throughout Europe, as hordes of migrants flooded into the Roman world across the Rhine, as Asiatic nomads swarmed over the Alps, as African Berber armies struck deep into Spain.
A thought-provoking account of some of our most fascinating ancestors by an author/presenter renowed for bringing less familiar history to life. The Dark Ages is an era in European history that are both little-known and little-understood. In this series Richard Rudgley challenges the conventional portrait of a dangerous and barbaric time. Through archaeological investigation and critical analysis, the art, society and cultural legacy of the barbarians are shown to have shaped and moulded the destiny of Europe even more than the Roman Empire. It is the ethnic mosaic of the Huns, Goths, Vandals, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and others that Richard reveals in this retelling of an often misunderstood time in our collective history.
The series is divided into three sections, the first starting with the fall of Rome, the second with the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain and the third with the rise of the Norse culture of the Vikings leading to the end of the Dark Ages.

2)  In a Time of Shadows
On the second part of his journey through the dark ages Richard Rudgley continues into the age of the wandering peoples, the Volkerwanderung. It is the time when the Anglo-Saxons impose their culture and their authority on the Northern reaches of Europe. It is a time when we discover that the first Englishmen were, in fact, Germans. These Northern people enjoyed a golden age unaffected by Rome and just 30 years after the Romans relinquished Britain, the "Anglo-Saxons" made their move. The bedraggled legions are in retreat. Walls are pulled down. Mosaics shattered. And yet there never was a people called Anglo-Saxon. We look at the lasting influence of Saxon leaders like Alfred the Great, and his blue print for social justice.
