"The History of the Goths" is a historical treatise on aspects of Romano-'barbarian' relations, written by the Gothic civil servant Jordanes.

It makes Jordanes' perspective on the history and politics of the time of Justitian accessible to students both of the history of late antiquity and of 6th century transitional Latin.
