What If?: Ep. 1 Ashton Howard
On this episode of “What If,” host Ashton Howard imagines how history might have changed if Rome had won the Battle of Teutoburg Forest against the Germanic tribes in 9 AD. Had Varus avoided ambush in the Teutoburg Forest, Rome may have successfully conquered and held Germania. This could have led Rome to expend more resources beyond the Rhine. Without independent Germanic tribes, the cultural makeup of Europe may have shifted with greater Romanization. Join Ashton as he explores the pivotal possibilities of this decisive ancient battle.
