New book out today! Cultures of Law in Urban Northern Europe

Today is the publication date of Cultures of Law in Urban Northern Europe: Scotland and its Neighbours c.1350–c.1650, a new collection of essays arising from the LACR project symposia. This volume, published by Routledge in the series Themes in Medieval and Early Modern History, is edited by Jackson Armstrong and Edda Frankot.

It includes an introduction and fourteen chapters written by sixteen contributors. Drawing together an international team of historians, lawyers and historical sociolinguists, this volume investigates urban cultures of law in Scotland, with a special focus on Aberdeen and its rich civic archive, the Low Countries, Norway, Germany and Poland from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century.

It’s now available for purchase in all good bookshops as a paperback, hardback and ebook, and directly from the publisher website at . Congratulations to all those who were involved in bringing this publication forward, from the symposia to today!
