The documentary is a result of years of research and work done by archaeologists who rose controversial questions concerning the past of the early Slavs. Truthfully, it is a fascinating journey into the lives of the medieval rulers and kings, early European christening location and the burial place of early elites. Because the documentary shows the way people lived and died in those savage times, viewers have a unique chance to see a re-enactment of the times that are long gone.
