Kingdoms of the Empire: The Integration of Barbarians in Late Antiquity
BRILL, Jan 1, 1997 - History - 230 pages

By carefully formulating answers to these and other seminal questions, "Kingdoms of the Empire" will prove an indispensable tool to both classical and medieval scholars. This is the first volume in a new and important monograph series, "The Transformation of the Roman World,"
