Showcase: Dacians and Sarmatians

There were few ancient peoples who were able to challenge the might of Rome, but the fierce Dacians, hailing from what is largely modern Romania, were one of the exceptions. Fighting two mighty wars with Rome, the Dacians gave the Legions a bloody nose they would not forget!

Fighting principally as infantry, the Dacians allied themselves with the highly skilled horsemen, and women, of Sarmatia, making a balanced and very powerful enemy force to fight, as the Romans found out to their cost. The Romans even developed new styles of armour in order to defend against the huge, heavy blades of the Dacian Falxmen.
