    This is an excellent, academically impeccable, thoroughly enjoyable book about the fascinating Gothic history, starting from the first dimly recognizably Gothic evidence in the first century AD, all the way to the end of the Ostrogoth and Visigoth kingdoms in the sixth and early eight centuries AD Peter Heather is one of my favorite authors an eminent historian of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and one of the most knowledgeable experts in Gothic history His competence and depth of specialis [...]

    If the Goths interest you at all, this book is pretty much a must read It is thorough and methodical and carefully lays out the details of a dautingly complex history It is also important enough that some scholars have disputed aspects of it Be warned however that it is not one of those works like Clendinnen s work on the Aztecs which will drawn in readers without an initial interest in the subject The author is deep into his subject and never comes up for air to consider the general readership, [...]

    In a relatively few years, Heather has become perhaps the leading living expert on the Goths during Late Antiquity and the early medieval period, and especially on their relations with the Roman Empire This is also one of the best entries in the long running and high quality Peoples of Europe series, which makes it doubly worth reading The last survey in English of the whole three centuries of the Gothic period was published in 1888, and not much really new literary material has come to light in [...]

    Heather s analysis of the primary sources Jordanes, Cassiodorus, Procopius, Ammianus, and about 75 others is incredible, and his presentation of archeological evidence notably the material from Wielbark and Cernjachov excavations is likewise impressive My only real complaints are 1 While he makes a convincing argument for placing the Goths point of origin somewhere in what s now northwestern Poland eastern Germany based mostly on Tacitus and grave finds instead of Sweden the legendary Gothic hom [...]

    Well, interesting Informative If you re looking for a narrative history of the Goths, this isn t it but that s not what it is trying to be Problem is, I m not sure quite what this is trying to be though granted, this is at least as likely to be due to my own lack of experience in this field as it is to any deficiency in the book itself Much of the book is spent discussing the question of whether there ever existed a Gothic ethnicity to which the answer, according to the author, appears to be som [...]

    Although the material in this book is somewhat dense, this scholarly work provides the most detailed account of the various tribal groups known collectively as Goths up to the time of its publication in 1996 In particular, Peter Heather supplemented the findings from the written historical record with archaeological discoveries to document both the migration of the various groups of Goths from the Baltic region of Europe to the Balkans and then across the Danube into the regions that were once i [...]

    Excellent overview of the Goths as an entity from their 1st century appearance on along the shores of the Baltic through the end of the Visigoth kingdom in Iberia I prefer Heather s reading of the evidence Goth s as distinct cultural entity through most of the time period to O Donnell s Ostrogoths as essentially Roman.

    A great introduction to the history of the Goths by Peter Heather This book traces the movements of the Goths from the Baltic to the Balkans, their invasion and settlement of Italy and Iberian Peninsula, to their final entanglements with the eastern empire and ultimate pacification.
