Roger Collins is one of the leading historians of the Spanish Late Antiquity and Middle Ages. Visigothic Spain 409-711 is a scholarly account on the history of the Visigothic Kingdom of Spain, covering the period between Roman and Muslim Spain. The history of Visigothic Spain and the Germanic peoples that settled in the Iberian Peninsula is widely unknown, but it’s still indispensible to understand the history of the later Christian Medieval states, since these claimed to be the restorers of the Catholic Visigothic Kingdom as opposed to al-Andalus. In this account Roger Collins provides a chronological overview of the political and military events, aspects of the society of the Visigothic Kingdom and the current state of research on the history and archeology of the period.
