Barbarians Rising

Reveals the 700-year struggle to bring down one of strongest empires the world has ever known.

Barbarians Rising

Barbarians Rising tells the story of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire from the perspective of the barbarian rebel leaders. It is a visceral journey into the heart of a wave of rebellions against absolute power. The Roman Empire called them “barbarians” – tribes the Romans viewed beyond the fringe of civilization that lived a brutish and violent existence.  However, these were also men and women who launched epic struggles that shaped the world to come.
