One of the research themes and interest of the Centre for Legal History in Edinburgh has long been Roman Law and Society as a search back through this blog or the Website of the Centre ( would easily confirm. This blogger's colleague, Dr Paul du Plessis, is shortly to publish an edited book with the above title above with Edinburgh Univeristy Press, building on earlier work. Your blogger has the privilege of receiving an advance copy, and it is a handsome work, full of interest to ancient historians and Roman lawyers alike.
