Abstract

These three papers conclude the third of three sessions on Law after Rome. Each paper considers a specific applied example of the mechanics and application of law. Calcagno considers 'Honour, Shame, and Religious Entanglements in Anglo-Saxon Legal Systems'; whereas Gantner analyses 'The so-called Runaway placitum' with the session concluding with Whitten's paper on 'Gender and Legal Identity in Early Medieval Southern Italy'.
