The Visigothic sack of Rome in 410 AD (and Vandal and Ostrogothic attacks) signalled the fall of the Western Roman Empire and its transformation into the nation-states of Europe. We will consider the emergence of 'England' from rival Anglo-Saxon and British kingdoms, ending with the magnificent Sutton Hoo royal ship-burial.
