E. A. Thompson presents an original narrative on the fall of the Western Roman Empire, since he attempts to explain the story from the perspective of the so-called Barbarians. In Romans and Barbarians the renowned historian argues that the relationship between Romans and Barbarians was very complex, and that the Barbarians shouldn’t be seen as destroyers of Roman culture and institutions. This book is not only focused on Spain, but he considers Italy, Gaul and the British Islands, although he neglects North Africa.
