Rome’s Disaster: The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest

2 Seasons

Tristan Hughes investigates one of Rome’s greatest disasters, the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.

The Battle of the Teutoburg forest stopped Roman expansion in its tracks. It’s a story of betrayal, of one man’s vehement desire to liberate his people from Roman rule and the brutal, bloody lengths he would go to achieve it.

Tristan Hughes heads to Germany to investigate how these German 'barbarians' beat one of history’s most powerful and well trained armies. With contemporary writing and expert historians on hand he walks in the footsteps of what's now remembered as the Varian disaster.
