  At a Christie's auction in October , a battered medieval manuscript sold for two million dollars to an anonymous bidder, who then turned it over to the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore for further study. The manuscript was a palimpsest-a book made from an earlier codex whose script had been scraped off and the pages used by: Wales and the Welsh in the Middle Ages Book Description: This is a major contribution to the study of medieval Wales by a group of outstanding British historians, writing in honour of one of Wales’s most distinguished scholars and the biographer of Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.

Under the direction of Tribonian, the Corpus Iurus Civilis was issued in three parts, in Latin, at the order of the Emperor Justinian. The Codex Justinianus () compiled all of the extant (in Justinian's time) imperial constitutiones from the time of Hadrian. It used both the Codex Theodosianus and private collections such as the Codex Gregorianus and Codex Hermogenianus.   A 'remarkably rare' medieval Welsh manuscript has sold in an auction at Sotheby's today. The tenth century text, thought to be written is a small handbook for a professional lawyer to use at.

So in this aspect Welsh Law of Hywel Dda was not as sophisticated as roman law, but Welsh law evolved in a certain way to deal with the economy. The basis of criminal law in medieval welsh law was the “three columns of the law,” which were homicide, theft and arson. An ancient manuscript text in book form. The word comes (in the late 16th century, denoting a collection of statutes or set of rules) from Latin, literally ‘block of wood’, later denoting a block split into leaves or tablets for writing on, hence a book.

These Welsh medieval law books bear so strong a general resemblance to one another that it can hardly be doubted but that they are all based on some one ultimate original, which, in our present state of information, we may suppose to have been a 'Book of the White House'.

In Law and the Imagination in Medieval Wales, Robin Chapman Stacey explores the idea of law as a form of political fiction: a body of literature that blurs the lines generally drawn between the legal and literary argues that for jurists of thirteenth-century Wales, legal writing was an intensely imaginative genre, one acutely responsive to nationalist concerns and capable of.
