An interesting book on the fall of the Roman Empire and the coincident collapse of material culture in western Europe is "The fall of Rome and the End of Civilization" by Bryan Ward-Perkins.

An interesting fact is that the Roman's banned virtually any weapons short of butcher knives to be legally owned by the civilian populace of the empire. So when the Roman Army collapsed in the various civil wars, the people were defenceless against armed invaders.

Interesting book casts doubt on a lot of myths.
