This short Latin text, conventionally divided into ten chapters, identifies itself as enactments of William I (1066–1087). As it stands, the text cannot wholly have been issued by William I, though some of the chapters may represent actual edicts of the king. This particular version formed part of the so-called Leges Anglorum, which were produced in the early thirteenth century probably in London as part of the criticism of the reign of King John.
