Laws

This list of texts constitutes the corpus from which the MNLD draws its material. The majority are provincial legal codes currently being translated into English as part of the Medieval Nordic Laws project based in Aberdeen. Unless otherwise specified, all translations are in preparation, though some translators have kindly supplied their working copies to the dictionary compilers.
