"Combining the latest archeological findings with information from traditional literary sources, Thomas S. Burns presents the first modern portrait of the Ostrogoths from their initial contacts with the Roman world in the third century through the dissolution of their kingdom in Italy in 554. Placing the Ostrogoths in a European social and historical perspective, Burns begins his story in the centuries before the final invasions of Rome. He introduces the reader to early Ostrogothic tribal, pagan society, and reveals the interactions between these barbarians and the Roman Empire. He analyzes the imperatives that led the Ostrogoths to expand and conquer the lands east of the Dniester River and the lower Danube and to establish the Ostrogothic kingdom of Italy."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
