Barbarians Rising – Ep 2 Sneak Peek

In ancient Hispania, Rome seeks revenge on the barbarian tribes that fought alongside Hannibal in his failed campaign to overthrow the Republic. Governor Galba massacres the Lusitanians, a Celtic tribe from western Iberia, and nearly annihilates the entire population. The survivors live as refugees in their own land, banding together under the shepherd-turned- leader Viriathus to launch a guerilla resistance against the Roman occupation. The barbarians use their knowledge of the terrain to their advantage in order to continue the fight while Vetillius launches a full-scale manhunt to track down the elusive rebel leader. The two sides meet in the Forest of Tribola for a fateful clash.
