    Visigothic Kingdom The Visigothic Kingdom or Kingdom of the Visigoths Latin Regnum Gothorum was a kingdom that occupied what is now southwestern France and the Iberian Peninsula from the th to the th centuries One of the Germanic successor states to the Western Roman Empire, it was originally created by the settlement of the Visigoths under King Wallia in the province of Aquitaine in southwest France by Visigoths Early origins The Visigoths emerged from the Gothic tribes, most likely a derivative name for the Gutones, a people believed to have their origins in Scandinavia and who migrated southeastwards into eastern Europe Such understanding of their origins is largely the result of Gothic traditions and their true genesis as a people is as obscure as that of the Franks and Alamanni. Visigoths Middle Ages The Visigoths were one of two main branches of the East Germanic tribe known as Goths the other tribe is the Ostrogoths The Goths were among the Germanic peoples who disturbed the late Roman Empire during the Migration Period, following a Visigothic force led by Alaric I s sacking of Rome in .

    An excellent survey on the history of the Visigoths in Spain. I would recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the Late Antique period, Iberian archaeology, "Gothic" tribes and their cultural and legal systems, Iberian historiography, etc. It includes a bibliographic essay, and is richly supported by citations to primary source materials (when available). Dr. Collins writes in a lively critical style which takes nothing as gospel and frequently suggests areas for further study and inte [...]

    If you like your academics curmudgeonly this is the book for you. He lays out the evidence for what we know about the Visigoths whilst making some entertaining sideswipes at Spanish archaeologists, German romantic historians and assorted nincumpoops who have had ideas without thoroughly researching the territory first.It is easy to read: don't pay attention to the dullards who should never have picked up an academic book in the first place.

    Collins seemed pretty reasonable to me. The prose was pretty dull, and there was a lot of good information I wrote down what I learned as soon as I finished. Should have done this all through graduate school, of course, but hardly ever did. But now I'm too old to A) plan on re-reading everything, or B) remember it all without writing it down.

    Again with the archeological history, but then I suppose that there isn't a great deal of primary source material during that period.
