Book description

The interaction of women with the legal system of England and Wales is a neglected topic of late medieval and early modern historiography. Based on close readings of both public and private documents – court records, churchwarden accounts, depositions, diaries, letters and pamphlets – this collection of essays presents the largely untold story of non-elite women and their dealings with the law.

Reviews

"'This collection of essays provide new insights for those less familiar with the early courts and offer new interpretations of depositions, often dismissed as a legal construct, and in doing so their respective authors uncover female voices from the archives.'"
