The judicery -

Recommended Posts

Seems Henry II, grandson of William the Conk; brought in a system of common law administered by circuit judges, who came from London to the provinces to ensure a common standard of justice throughout the country. :? As with many such things in our anachronistc country, that system still exists today - with the visiting circuit judge still being met by the Lord High Sherriff of the County. :roll::wink:

The old original one would be a start :wink: walking 9 paces across the manor hall where you would be tried holding a red hot iron bar in both hands outstretched in front of you .......... you did of course HAVE to pick it up first from within a cauldron of boiling water :twisted:
