This is a major new history of one of the greatest and most epic mysteries; the strange death of the Roman Empire. For half a millennium the empire of Rome stretched from Hadrian's Wall to the river Euphrates, a massive fortified state founded on military might and the pillars of civilisation - writing, the city, and the rule of law. What had happened? Covering the last 100 years of Empire, a period full of great battles, treachery, and characters as wild as Attila the Hun, Peter Heather shows how the Empire gave way before the relentless and deliberate onslaught of the Huns, Goths and Vandals. These tribes, originating in Eastern Europe, finally conquered large tracts of the old Empire, sacking Rome itself and defeating Roman armies on land and sea. Quantity Available: 1.
