This series deals with the mass migration of Germanic tribes at the very beginning of European history, when Rome raced toward collapse.
Also known as The Saga of the Goths.
The Romans knew virtually nothing about Germanic tribes, but this was to change. “They found skulls nailed to trees and altars. Here the Cherusci had sacrificed the most high-ranking Roman prisoners to their gods.” When Roman power was at its peak, in the year 9 AD, Arminius chief of the Cherusci defeated the troops of Rome at what was known for centuries as the Battle of Teutoburg Forest.
