Total War: Age of Charlemagne – The Light in the Dark

Produced by Creative for SEGA, Past Preservers presenter Dr. Paul Harrison presented and wrote this documentary short.

To mark the recent release of Age of Charlemagne; the biggest expansion yet for Total War: Attila, historian and archaeologist Dr. Paul Harrison takes us through the highlights of the life of one of the most celebrated and feared kings ever known.

Featuring footage from the game, this documentary short covers the often controversial achievements of the ‘Father of Europe’ as he dragged the entire continent out of the Dark Ages and set it on the road to enlightenment and prosperity. From the subjugation of the Saxons and the mass execution of his prisoners, to the widespread establishment of education and literacy, Charlemagne life is an incredible tale, and you can get a flavour of it in the new game.
