(4 out of 5 stars)
"The title of this video "Romans and Barbarians" is, perhaps, too grand for the scope. (And perhaps too grand for a fifty minute treatment).
Principally the video covers the Roman invasion of Britain, and the barbarians of the title are the Celts who inhabited the island.
Visuals are good. The principal "interviewee" is a professor of miitary history at Sandhurst and the video includes discussion of Roman military organization, weapons and tactics. The time covered is from the reconnaisance in force by Caesar through the invasion of Claudius, and up to the suppression of the resisting tribes.
Worth the money, as long as you understand the scope
