Welcome to Merovingianworld! This is a blog and resource site dedicated to study of the Frankish kingdoms under the Merovingian dynasty, from c. 450 to c. 750. At present the site is not affiliated with any specific project other than my teaching at the University of St Andrews. Creating and developing the site is, however, intended to lead places. The site will no doubt change over time in response to my own research, new publications in the field, the production of new resources – especially, these days, the increase in digitised manuscripts available online -, and who-knows-what at conferences and at network meetings.

In the meantime, if you have any suggestions or comments, please email me at james.palmer@st-andrews.ac.uk
