Between 376 and 476 the Roman Empire in western Europe was dismantled by aggressive outsiders, 'barbarians' as the Romans labelled them. Chief among these were the Visigoths, a new force of previously separate Gothic and other groups from south-west France, initially settled by the Romans but subsequently, from the middle of the fifth century, achieving total independence from the failing Roman Empire, and extending their power from the Loire to the Straits of Gibraltar. These studies draw on literary and archaeological evidence to address important questions thrown up by the history of the Visigoths and of the kingdom they generated. The inclusion of current Spanish scholarship reflects the switch of the centre of the Visigothic kingdom from France to Spain from the beginning of the sixth century.
