Die Germanen by Walter Pohl

By Walter Pohl

Der Band beschreibt Geschichte und Kultur des Gebietes, das die Römer Germania nannten, vom 1. Jh. v. Chr. bis zum 6. Jh. n. Chr. Ein Volk, das sich selbst Germanen nannte und von Sprache und Kultur zusammengehalten wurde, hat es wohl gar nicht gegeben. Nachweisbar ist eine Vielfalt von `Völkern im Werden´. Aus dem Raum "Germania" wuchsen sie in mehrfachen Brüchen und Neuansätzen in die veränderte ethnische Geographie des mittelalterlichen Europa hinein.
