Summary
These programs detail many facets of the world's greatest civilizations, including in-depth information about the most brutal and feared leaders of the ancient world. The rise of ancient Rome is followed from the first Roman-Barbarian War to the decline of the Empire. Mind-boggling construction feats and gravity-defying masterpieces of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks are explored in detail. The origins of the Huns, Goths, Vikings, and Mongols, powerful groups whose military strength and overwhelming drive terrorized three continents, are examined. This "megaset" includes episodes from four History Channel series as well as bonus material
