    • The Fall of the Roman Empire by Peter Heather
    • How Rome Fell by Adrian Goldsworthy.
    • The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization by Bryan Ward-Perkins
    • The Restoration of Rome by Peter Heather.
    • Empires of Faith by Peter Sarris focuses on the various states that succeeded the Roman Empire up to the rise of Islam. It strikes a good balance between narrative and explanation, it's a very good standalone work on the period after the fall.
