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.
