Laws of Early Iceland, Gragas II
The laws of Mediaeval Iceland provide detailed and fascinating insight into the society that produced the Icelandic sagas. Known collectively as Gragas (Greygoose), this great legal code offers a wealth of information about early European legal systems and the society of the Middles Ages. This first translation of Gragas is in two volumes.
“An amazing social document … that is the blueprint for an unprecedented social experiment. … An example of scholarship of the highest order.”
– American Journal of Legal History
