On the Burgundians you could try F. Passard et al,
Le Doubs, vallee des Franks entre Rhin et Saone, published in 2000. It is
a popular and well illustrated booklet on part of 6th-7th century Burgundy
which accompanied a recent academic conference. It has a useful
bibliography to more weighty tomes on Burgundy. I got my copy from the
museum in Besancon but it may well be sold by one of the internet
bookshops like amazon.fr, fnac.com or chapitre.com
