On offer is a beautifully written historical recitation in French titled "Invasions Barbares" or in English the 'Invasion of the Barbarians.' While undated we believe this is an early 20th century manuscript wherein over 96 pages in lovely calligraphic hand we are told of the barbarian invasion of Europe complete with hand-drawn maps. One online source provides perspective: "The Migration Period, also called Barbarian Invasions or Völkerwanderung (German for "wandering of the peoples"), was a period of human migration which occurred within the period of roughly 300-700 CE in Europe,[1] marking the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages. The migration included the Goths, Vandals, Bulgars, Alans, Suebi, Frisians, and Franks, among other Germanic, Iranian and Slavic tribes. The migration may have been triggered by the incursions of the Huns, in turn connected to the Turkic migration in Central Asia, population pressures, or climate changes. Migrations would continue well beyond 1000 CE, with successive waves of Slavs, Avars, Hungarians, then the Turkic expansion, Mongol invasions, and finally the Ottoman conquests, radically changing the ethnic makeup of Eastern Europe. Western European historians tend to emphasize the earlier migrations most relevant to Western Europe." Some old damp-stains on the first few pages in purple ink on lined paper in an old journal. There is a torn out triangular chunk to the upper right corner of the fep taking part of the authors last name with it. Otherwise G.
