The Test Book

Texts from the Test Book

The Iorwerth manuscripts have a tripartite division, into the laws of court, the laws of country, and the justices’ test book. The introduction to the test book, it is said to contain the core texts which a man would need to know in order to become a justice, and those are the three columns of law, the value of wild and tame, and the things which pertain to them. In addition to those sections, there is an appendix to the test book which has sections on co-operative ploughing, corn damage, and other short sections on related topics.
