Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the History's Turning Points series, which explores pivotal moments in world history, History's Turning Points: The Conquest of Spain focuses on the 8th century and the spread of Arab rule. Thanks to the rise of the Muslim Empire at the start of the 8th century, Arab government made its powerful way to the Middle East, Egypt, and North Africa. Eventually, the Arabs invaded Spain and captured the Visigoth Kingdom. The program uses on-location dramatizations to tell the story.
