Synopsis by Alice Day
For centuries, the nomadic tribe known as the Huns conquered vast territories with their ruthless methods of battle. Lacking the skill to develop agriculture, they resorted to wholesale slaughter, and the constant threat of Hun raids resulted in the construction of the Great Wall of China. The Huns were well-equipped for war, having learned how to utilize iron to make superior weapons against their enemies. Ancient Tribes: The Huns is another entry in the series of programs that provides in-depth examinations of historically important groups.
