'Anyone wanting to learn about some of the major families of Burgundy and Austrasia will need to consult this book, and the reader will also find numerous points of detail that illuminate the seventh century. At the same time, Fox unwittingly exposes the limits of modern categorization.' Ian Wood, Early Medievel Europe
