The Goths: From the Earliest Times to the End of the Gothic Dominion of Spain
By Henry Bradley. The Goths were an East Germanic tribe, whose two main subgroups, the Visigoths and the Ostrogoths, played an important role in the fall of the Roman Empire and the emergence of Medieval Europe.
Far too little credit has been given to the Goths for their role in forging what is now modern-day Europe, they being many times portrayed merely as hide-wearing barbarians.
The Goths were far more sophisticated and civilized than that, as shown in this book on their rich culture and accomplishments.
