Barbarian gold - Visigothic treasure in Southern France
The treasure was stolen from Rome in 410 AD.
Within two years it was in Languedoc.
We know it formed the basis of the visigothic treasure housed in Toulouse.
We know it was later at Carcassonne.
We know it was at Rennes-le-Château.
But then ?
Val Wineyard traces this treasure trail across Europe, from 410 AD until the present day.
