This volume contains the proceedings from the conference “How Nordic are the Nordic Medieval Laws? – Ten Years After” which was held at the Carlsberg Academy in May 2013 in Copenhagen. 

The main theme of the conference was a return to the question raised at the first conference held back in 2003: The Nordic medieval laws seen in a European context. In these ten years the interpretation of the Nordic laws has changed from a specific Nordic to a more common European perspective, understanding the Nordic laws as a part of a common European tradition. Thus, the traditional interpretation that the Nordic medieval laws were expressions of an ancient Nordic culture has been under change since the first Carlsberg conference and this volume sums up the current stage of research and raises new questions.

The publication of this volume is funded by The Carlsberg Foundation.
