Abstract

The last several decades have seen numerous developments in the study of Anglo-Saxon law and legal culture across the whole of the Old English period. Medievalists from across many disciplines have come together to produce work that has improved our understanding of government and administration in the period, and Anglo-Saxon legal culture is now a vibrant and growing field. Following the fruitful sessions on Law and Legal Culture in Anglo-Saxon England at the Kalamazoo ICMS in recent years, this session seeks to continue that work and the dialogue on this dynamic topic.
