Very informative although it could do with less interviews from professionals and more reenactments. The bonus material of the plague documentary is really good! It had more reenactments and less talking which made it more interesting.

Definitely recommend this for lovers of this historical period or people who just want to learn more about it. I wish the history channel would make more documentaries like this more often.

Wow, did I learn a lot. Excellent video. I am trying to connect my many books with History Channel DVDs in an attempt to correlate and confirm all of my research (personal knowledge only). This video answered many questions I had in regards to the demise of the Roman Empire and the rise of Charlemagne. I learned of further conquerors (Moors) and Leaders (Martel) that I had overlooked. I highly recommend this video.

I enjoy history but I found that there was a huge gap in time that no one wanted to talk about. There was a thousand years in there that no one really disused, from 200AD to 1200AD.

This video takes you through the missing years talking about the collapse of the Roman Empire, which created a huge void. That fractured the empire and then several people then tried to take over through war only grabbing a piece of it. Most of Europe was created in the absence of the Roman Empire. The video takes you through the next thousand years stopping at the most notable events roughly every hundred years.

There was a lot of war, disease and sadness after the fall of the Roman Empire. It was the years that saw religion rise and nations being built all with a huge cost to all that lived in those times.

They did a good job of filming it too. There were actors filling the screen on how it likely unfolded with a narrator in the background telling you what you were seeing. Occasionally an expert or pictures of the time were shown so you can see why they thought that this was the way it happened.

Rome fell because leadership was corrupted and they only cared about themselves and not the nation. It also shows that sometimes you need a strong man to run an empire with an iron fist to keep the law and order. We certainly have seen what happens when they are removed. Our leaders today would do well to watch this video and avoid the known consequence of there actions. We certainly don't need another dark age.
