Hello Nevertis,

Anthony Minghella's family are from Italy, well his father's side anyway.

That said I was trying to find a site about the Alans in Brittany and I came across some interesting sites.

This site shows the Alans migration which includes Italy, Sicily and Sardinia.

Below are quotes from a Roman forum site

"The Notitia Dignitatum lists a range of praefecti Sarmatarum gentilium (prefects of Sarmatian tribesmen) in charge of barbarian settlers throughout Italy."

"Where I live in north Italy near Venice there are a few small towns whose names (Sarmego, Sarmeola,...) some say come from "Sarmatian" due to settlements the romans organized in those areas that had de-populated"

So perhaps the Minghella family are descendants of a Sarmatian prefect.

The Notitia Dignitatum site has sheilds also and from what I can make out there were Alans also.

I am going to try to obtain the book about the Alans in the West as I am interested in the Alan/Breton connection.

Kind regards
