An entertaining surprise in 2010 was the premier of the television series ‘’ Spartacus”. Inspired by the historical figure, Spartacus was a Thracian Gladiator who led a major slave uprising against the Roman Empire for two years (73 – 71 BC). The Thracians, Regarded as barbarians by the Romans, were composed of warrior clans who engaged in numerous conflicts spanning from the 10th BC to the 1st Century AD.
