Im currently re-reading this book, this is a major scholar work using both historical, archeological and hagiographical sources to explain the settlement of Brittany by the Britons in late roman and early medieval times, summing up decades of research by people like Léon Fleuriot, Bernard Tanguy or André Chédeville.

A book to have for anyone interested in the Briton migrations and relationships between Britain and Gaul in sub-roman times. It's a real chance such a work was translated in english.

You can get it here from amazon: ... 631&sr=8-1
