The judicial system constructed by the Normans after 1066 rested on a broad foundation of Anglo-Saxon institutions. Adams traces the evolution of this construction with an emphasis on the ways Anglo-Saxon and Norman practices influenced one another. He proceeds to demonstrate how the resulting judicial hybrid contributed to the development of the English constitution.
