More on "Barbarians Rising"

TELEVISION Is 'Barbarians Rising' A True Story? Meet The Real Rebel Leaders Behind History's Docuseries (LAURA ROSENFELD, Bustle). I mentioned this series recently with reference to the first episode on Hannibal and the Punic Wars. But this article profiles a number of other "barbarian" leaders, some of whom are of interest and who have come up in past PaleoJudaica posts for one reason or another. For more on Hannibal and the Punic Wars, see here and links, here, and here. I am astonished that there are no past posts on Spartacus. Boudica (Boudicca) has been mentioned here, although the rumored movie never happened. And there's a post on Alaric (and the Temple treasures!) here (cf. here). Cross-file under Punic Watch.
