Description

This session forms part of the on-going reevaluation of the present state of the study of Anglo-Saxon law which began with the celebration of the centenary of Felix Liebermann's Gesetze der Angelsachsen. Recognizing the extent to which our understanding of early law has changed over the last century, the purpose of this session is to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss new ways of understanding pre-Conquest legal culture. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): royal legislation, legal manuscripts, law in/and literature, legal procedure, charters and diplomatics, writs and wills, dispute resolution, theories of law and justice, perceptions of early law in later periods, law in/and art. The last few years have witnessed the most extensive reconsideration of Old English law since Liebermann himself, and this session offers an important opportunity to discuss the progress and publicize the research taking place in this field.
