After empire : towards an ethnology of Europe's barbarians by Conference Studies in historical archaeoethnology( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
The decline of the Roman Empire encouraged the spread westwards of tribes from eastern Europe, settling areas from which native people had been cleared by the spread of the power of Rome. The studies here focus on the customs of these barbarian peoples

Franks and Alamanni in the Merovingian period : an ethnographic perspective by Conference on studies in historical archaeoethnology( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
The Franks were the most successful of all the barbarian peoples to establish a kingdom in the aftermath of the collapse of the West Roman Empire. Among their victims were their immediate neighbours, the Alamanni, who were swalowed up in the course of Frankish expansion. Partly because of the collapse of the Alaman kingdom, the Alamanni have received little attention from Anglophone scholars in the past, and this volume is therefore a welcome consideration of Franks and Alamanni from a series of perspectives, historical, archaeological, and linguistic
The continental Saxons from the migration period to the tenth century : an ethnographic perspective by Conference on "Studies in Historical Archaeoethnology"( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
Jural relations desumed from Carolingian capitularies show interesting connections to preceding customary norms, whilst the vicissitudes of the regional economy, based on agriculture and animal husbandry, from Roman to Migration and later periods are highlighted by the study of vegetable remains and pollen analysis."--Jacket
The Ostrogoths from the migration period to the sixth century : an ethnographic perspective by Conference on "Studies in Historical Archaeoethnology"( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
Among the Germanic tribes who ruled the fragments of the western Roman empire, the Ostrogoths enjoyed the greatest wealth and splendour. Conquering Italy itself from the warlord Odoacer, they inherited the buildings, traditions, and administrative apparatus of imperial rule, and revived the empire in Spain, southern Gaul and the northwest Balkans. Aspects of their history and empire examined here include their ethnic identity in Italy and relations (as Asian heretics) with the Catholic Church; the vicissitudes of sixth century Rome, the monuments of the period in Ravenna; their influence on the economy, settlements, and social structures throughout Italy; the interweaving of society and administration with their internal and external politics; and the history of their Spanish empire. There are also studies of the Goths in eastern Europe before the emergence of the Ostrogoths, and under Hunnic rule. The whole significantly advances an understanding of how medieval Europe evolved from the combination of Roman civilisation with Germanic outsiders

On effectiveness ( Book )

Eight papers and the discussions thereof are included."--Jacket
The Baiuvarii and Thuringi : an ethnographic perspective ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
The large neighbouring tribes of the Baiuvarii and Thuringi, who lived between the Alps and the River Elbe from the fifth to eighth centuries, are the focus of this book. Using a variety of different sources drawn from the fields of archaeology, history, linguistics and religion, the contributions discuss how an ethnos, a gens, or a tribe, such as the Baiuvarii or Thuringi, might appear in the written and archaeological evidence. For the Thuringi tribal traditions started around the year 400 or even earlier, while the Baiuvarii experienced a much later ethnogenesis from both immigrants and a local, partly Romance population in the mid-sixth century. The Baiuvarii and Thuringi are studied together because of the astonishing connections between their two settlement landscapes. In the context of the row-grave civilisation the Thuringi belonged primarily to the eastern, the Baiuvarii to the western sphere. The kingdom of the Thuringi was assimilated into the Merovingian Empire after their defeat by the Franks in the 530s, which also changed their burial customs to the style of the western row-grave zone. In contrast, the Baiuvarii were not "Frankicised" until more than a century later and their grave customs remained more typically "Bavarian". The chapters highlight typical features of each region and beyond: settlements, agricultural economy, law, religion, language, names, craftsmanship, grave goods, mobility and communication
The visigoths from the migration period to the seventh century : an ethnographic perspective by Conference on studies in historical archaeoethnology( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
"Between 376 and 476 the Roman Empire in western Europe was dismantled by aggressive outsiders, 'barbarians' as the Romans labelled them. Chief among these were the Visigoths. The Visigoths were actually a new force constructed out of a number of previously separate Gothic and other groups in the period c. 376-410, who were initially settled by the Roman state as autonomous subordinates in a corner of south-western France in 418." "The studies comprising this volume cover most of the important questions thrown up by the history of the Visigoths and of the kingdom they generated. Between them, these different studies also adopt a wide variety of approaches, encompassing and discussing most of the major types of source material - both literary and archaeological - currently available for reconstructing Visigothic history."--Jacket

War and ethnicity : global connections and local violence ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
"The great majority of today's wars take place within rather between states and are often explained and justified by participants as the result of deep and ineradicable differences between 'them' and 'us'. The contributors to this book, whose disciplinary backgrounds include history, political science, international relations and anthropology, explore the growing importance of such 'ethnic' differences in a world that is also becoming more unified, politically, economically and culturally. They discuss the causes of internal war, the techniques used by nationalist politicians and intellectuals to turn ethnicity into a powerful political resource, the response of the UN and of non-governmental agencies to such 'complex' political emergencies as those in former Yugoslavia and Somalia and the constitutional strategies that can be used to acknowledge and accommodate ethnic diversity."--Jacket
