* Ancient Petitions, Henry III - James I: A Catalogue of the 'Ancient Petitions' in the National Archives (UK)
"Search and download over 17,000 images from the series of Ancient Petitions which draws together petitions addressed to the king, to the king and council, to the king and council in parliament, to the chancellor, and to certain other officers of state. The petitions include detailed information about the circumstances of the parties involved, and the conditions of the locality. These documents reveal something of the attitude to public authority in the later Middle Ages and the social conventions and political culture. Most of the petitions are in Anglo-Norman French, although some early examples are in Latin, while English was increasingly used as the fifteenth century progressed. Most of the petitions came from England, but a significant minority were from Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Aquitaine, Gascony and other parts of France. "

* Tales of Justice and Vengeance
"The prime purpose of this "Appendix of Case Narratives" in my (Paul Hyams') book-in-progress, Rancor and Reconciliation in Medieval England, is to keep the main text clear of digressions and long footnotes that would further disturb the flow of argument. But the narratives below also represent some central premises and contentions of the book. These hold that what usually matters most about lawsuits and other disputes for the historian is their dynamics and that the best, maybe the only way to seize these is to deploy all available sources of information about the parties and their continuing social relations, including especially as much extra-curial information as possible."
