A COMPILATION OF PUBLISHED SOURCES


A Note To Users

English Medieval Legal Documents wikiThe goal of this project is to create a collaborative database on the published sources of English medieval legal documents, and to provide links to the growing number of online sources currently being developed.

The guide has been created for the use of scholars and students of English medieval law, and it is our expectation that it will continue to grow and take off in new directions, based on the contributions of legal
scholars, librarians, and information specialists throughout the world. If you are aware of new digitizing initiatives or new publications of legal documents, or if you would like to add, edit, or comment on the present contents of this wiki, please feel free to do so. You may register by clicking on the link on the right of your screen.
