By 1300 England possessed a sophisticated judicial system. Nevertheless it was a violent and lawless country. Outlaws like Robin Hood were heroes, gangs of gentry roamed the countryside, and royal judges went in fear of their lives. Using original sources, this course explores the history of crime and punishment in late medieval England.
