Everyone, of course, knows the more famous work by Edward Gibbon as a monumental achievment, though many have questions on it these days (in the light of new archaeological evidence); It still remains the classic work on the decline and fall of the Roman empire. This, at first, you may think is simply a way to steal thunder from a much more impressive work and in a way its title suggests such to be the case. This, however, is a work of great thought and possibly the best work relating to the end of the Roman occupation of Britain. Many things ring true here and little seems false, the arguments are reasoned and reasonable. Though no one will ever know the truth about the disintegration of the Roman occupation of Britain this gives very reasonable and considered reasons for it. Thoroughly recommended.
