Early English Laws

A major new project entitled 'Early English Laws' has started at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), University of London. The project aims to edit or re-edit, translate, introduce and comment on all 142 early legal codes, edicts, manuals and treatises composed in England before the issuing of Magna Carta in 1215, and to make these materials available online.

Excellent! And much-needed. I hope Stephen Baxter can get some sense out of the workings for the second volume of Wormald's Making of English Law in the same timeframe.
