The After Rome section covers everything from Byzantium to Visigoths, Saxons and the Carolingian Renaissance. A bit of a mixed set from an unstable period that eventually found its feet. Much of the material is in the form of metalwork - brooches, buckles and pins. The Byzantines are early ones - pre-11th century.
