Empire Games

Brutality of Celts
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  The History Channel  |  July 3, 2018

This series explores the greatest empires in a way that has never been fully investigated. Each episode highlights and exposes the political intrigue, personal vendettas, family mayhem, acts of vengeance and the ever-evolving tension, turmoil and chaos that shaped these civilisations and led to their destruction from within. Rome's Gaelic Wars are remembered as the stepping stone Julius Caesar used to assume absolute power in Rome. But what of the point of view of the many Celtic tribes that rose in opposition to the invader? We'll explore this incredible conflict from a totally new perspective. These were not faceless barbarians but skilled warriors and brilliant politicians. Chief among them was Vercingetorix, the great leader who united them all and met his end in Rome, a human spoil of war paraded through the forum for the glory of Caesar.
