Adrienne, on this one I've got to disagree with you. There is no longer
any distinction between history and anthropology. You cannot get through
a volume by one of the latter day historians without encountering kinship
diagrams and anthrogibberish. As for conquerors and conquered, consider
Peter Heather, Goths and Romans, 332-489, 1990. On history as fieldwork
among dead people, consider Roger S. Bagnall, Egypt in Late Antiquity, 1992;
also, Reading Papyri, Writing Ancient History, 1995.
