Year 600 Project Book Title

After a mere eleven years of working, on and off, on my 'Transformations of the Year 600' project, I have finally come up with a title for the book that might eventually appear based upon this work. I was always a bit uneasy about using 'The Transformations of the Year 600' as the main title, partly because it is a little unwieldy and partly because it was always a play on the late Guy Bois' Transformations of the Year 1000. That said, I also wanted to keep 'The End of the Roman World' as the title for part 2 of the book. The other day, though, I had a bit of a revelation, so the title I have come up with is (drum roll please) The End of Western Antiquity: The Transformations of the Year 600.
