Law and Order in Anglo-Saxon England

Tom Lambert

  • The only modern book-length account of Anglo-Saxon legal culture and practice
  • Offers an original interpretation of a fundamental period in the history of English law
  • Treats law not as an isolated intellectual artefact but an integrated part of Anglo-Saxon society, economy, politics, and culture
  • Describes a distinctive legal order with no close modern analogies; neither state-like nor stateless, it needs to be understood on its own terms
