Synopsis by Alice Day
The history of the Normans is provided in Ancient Tribes: The Normans, as the series continues to explore the contributions of ancient civilizations. As the Scandinavian people moved into a small section of France under their leader Rollo, the conquering tribe began its era of growing domination that would result in the eventual takeover of England by William the Conqueror. The program also looks at the influences of the Normans on English culture and practices. On-location filming enhances the content of the programs.
