[edit] Information

Storm Over Europe This documentary deals with the mass migration of Germanic tribes at the very beginning of European history. In 120 BC the Cimbrians and Teutons emerged from Denmark and waged war on the Roman Empire to the south, with conspicuous success. In the fifth century the Goths, Franks and Vandals joined the bloodthirsty Huns, bringing about the final collapse of the Empire.

[edit] Cimbrians and Teutons

To Roman eyes, the tribe they called the Cimbri, the Cimbrians, lived “at the edge of the inhabited world”, in Jutland. In 120 B. C., they and other Germanic tribes began a mass migration. Now through excavations we learn about these ancient tribes and their lives.

[edit] The Saga of the Goths

The Goths rocked the Roman Empire and wrote themselves into history. Who were these tribes from the north that ended the rule of Rome?

[edit] The Fall of Rome

For the people of the ancient world, the Huns were "the most feared of all warriors". Never before had people experienced such brutal fighting. The power of the mounted nomads became a threat to Rome, but other tribes were also on the move and headed to the center of a weakened empire.

[edit] The Heirs of Rome

Starting in the fifth century A.D. the Franks migrated to France, the Anglo-Saxons to Britain, and the Goths to Spain and Italy. Europe and the Christian West grew out of their empires and their migrations.
