Fall of Civilizations: 1/10 – Roman Britain – The Work of Giants Crumbled

23/04/2021

Fall of Civilizations tells the story of what happens when societies collapse.

A history podcast looking at the collapse of a different civilization each episode. What did they have in common? Why did they fall? And what did it feel like to watch it happen?

Each episode, we look at a civilization that rose to glory, and then collapsed into the ashes of history. We ask: Why did it collapse? What happened next? And what did it feel like to be a person alive at the time?

A vast ruined bath house, a fire-damaged poem and a world teetering on the brink of collapse. In this episode, we look at the collapse of Roman Britain. Find out how a great civilization grew up almost overnight on the island of Britannia, how it endured the test of centuries against barbarian invasions and foolish rulers, and what happened after its final dramatic collapse.
