A Century of British Medieval Studies

Paul Brand

British Academy

This chapter examines twentieth-century British scholarship on medieval English legal history. Legal history has long been a marginal subject within British academic life, falling somewhat clumsily between the two stools of law and history, although it is an essential part of both subjects. There were very few English medieval legal historians at work during the twentieth century and this is unlikely to change for the better in the future.

Keywords:   English legal history, British scholarship, academic life, law, legal historians, medieval history
