What do we really know about the Germanic peoples who encroached on Roman territory in the last few centuries of the western empire? And how do we know it? When it comes to the Ostrogoths and Visigoths, we have a history written in the 6th century by a man of Gothic descent: Jordanes, whose The Origin and Deeds of the Goths is an invaluable resource for scholars.
