Of all the Germanic invasions that plagued the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century, the migration of the Vandals was the longest: They came from Central and Eastern Europe via Gaul (406) and Spain (409) to North Africa (429), where they founded a kingdom that survived for almost a century.

Roman Continuity and Discontinuity in the Vandal Kingdom

This long “journey”, which brought the Vandals into contact and confrontation with very different regions and peoples within the Western Roman Empire, sanctioned the distinctiveness of this people: An open and ill-defined identity, as if this Germanic group were experiencing a perpetual process of ethnogenesis. This phenomenon is particularly evident after the occupation of the North African provinces, when the Vandals were more receptive to the assimilation of romanitas, to such an extent that a distinction between Vandal and Roman identity became increasingly difficult.

The workshop is the first in a series of meetings focusing on the Vandals. The objective of this first meeting is to study the Roman elements of continuity and discontinuity during the Vandal migration and domination, with the further goal of trying to delineate – if possible – a clearer Vandal identity.
