Re: Liverpool



Had to do half a gcse on this haha juries were used by rome so they would've been used in britain long before the saxons. There were big differences in law for different classes, like if you killed a nobleman the wergild was 300 shillings a freeman was 100 shillings a slave was about twenty and a welshman was around six. But then saxon england was divided into lots of kingdoms so this probably varied. And bloodfueds were used as a main form of punishment until christianity was introduced when they used wergilds or bloodmoney.
