Synopsis by Alice Day
This series of programs provides historical information about 21 important groups of people. Dramatic re-enactments of fierce battles enhance the narratives and animated maps depict the territories covered in each production. When available, artifacts and artwork from the tribes are shown. Ancient Tribes: The Vikings gives an account of the exploits of the aggressive Vikings, whose ships enabled them to regularly raid major European cities between 800 and 1000 A.D. Their power did not decline until the Norman conquest of England in 1066.
