Overview

The Goths were an East Germanic people, two of whose branches, the Visigoths and the Ostrogoths, played an important role in the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the emergence of Medieval Europe. An important source of knowledge of the Goths is Getica, a semi-fictional account, written in the 6th century by the Roman historian Jordanes, of their migration from southern Scandza (Scandinavia), into Gothiscandza--believed to be the lower Vistula region in modern Pomerania--and from there to the coast of the Black Sea.

The Story of the Goths by Henry Bradley is a fascinating and concise history of the people that brought down the Romans.
