Germanic Tribes

Image 1 / 9

‘Germanic Tribes' shows the rise of the tribes of the North from a primitive culture, on the fringe of Europe to becoming the heirs of the Roman Empire. For a long time the view of the Germanic tribes was distorted by the Germanic cult of the 19th century and the Nazi dictatorship. Due to new discoveries and methods of research, this documentary series is able to present a different picture of the Germanic tribes. The series breathes new life into the submerged world of the Germanic tribes. We see how they lived, fought and worshipped their Gods. Intricate 3D animation demonstrates how they built their settlements, buried their kings, vanquished their enemies. Roman cities such as the ancient Cologne, home of the Romanophile Germans and the Roman limes, the border to free Germania, are also reconstructed by computer.
