  1. A short outline of events after the Goths' entry into the ERE in 376 AD: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/timelineofthegothicwar Some say this struggle was the catalyst for the Western Empire's fall. There is a plausible chain reaction theory to back that up (autonomous Goths living in empire post-382->Alaric->Visigothic identity->overreliance on 'foederati'), but I wondered what other people thought?
  2. I've been listening to this over the last few months. Quality content that digs deep and shines light on the why when where and who of the fall of the West. Recommended!
  3. Hi All, Just a shout out to let you know that my new Legionary novel - 'Empire of Shades' - is out. If you're not familiar with the series, it's Late Roman, and is set in the Eastern Empire during the time of Valens and Theodosius. Here's the foxy cover art and a teaser intro 379 AD: Thracia has fallen to the Gothic horde… With the ashes of Adrianople still swirling in the air, the Eastern Roman Empire is in turmoil. The emperor is dead, the throne lies empty and the remaining fragments of the army are few and scattered. Numerius Vitellius Pavo, now Tribunus of the XI Claudia, tries to hold his patchwork ranks together amidst the storm. One of the few legions to have survived the disaster at Adrianople, the Claudia do what they can to keep alive the dying flame of hope. When word spreads of a new Eastern Emperor, those hopes rise. But the coming of this leader will stir the Gothic War to new heights. And it will cast Pavo headlong into the sights of the one responsible for the East’s plight – a man mighty and seemingly untouchable, and one who will surely crush any who dares to challenge him. From the ashes of Adrianople, new heroes will rise… with dark ghosts in close pursuit. Paperback and eBook, available here: Amazon UK Amazon USA And there's plenty of goodies - free samples, imagery and companion short stories etc - here: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/legionary/legionary-empire-of-shades---free-prologue http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/legionary/legionary6gallery http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/cityoftheblind If you decide to try, I hope you enjoy. Would be great to hear your thoughts too. Cheers, Gordon
  4. I spent a few weeks earlier in the year fulfilling a long-held ambition: I traveled to ancient Thracia in search of the Battle of Adrianople - a pivotal clash that had far-reaching consequences for both the Eastern and Western Empires. Tens of thousands of legionaries fell to Fritigern's Gothic horde somewhere near the city that gave its name to the battle. Yet to this day, nobody has successfully located the site of the battle. I'd love to say I solved the riddle... but it confounded me too, though I had great fun exploring and putting shape to the landscape I've read so much about. Here's all my pics, historical facts and theories: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/thebattleofadrianople

    Ancient Adrianople

    Another travelogue from my trip to Western Turkey last year: this time discussing my excursion to the ancient city of Adrianople (modern Edirne) http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/theancientcityofadrianople Commenting on my blog site is a bit of a pain, so happy to discuss here
