This chapter represents an examination of the nature of the records that describe judicial court procedure in northern Iberia in the 9th and 10th centuries. It reveals that most records do not derive from court proceedings but from subsequent construction, sometimes for very partial reasons. This allows us a better understanding of process on the ground and some perception of the power relations that derive from controlling the record.
