Principal Investigator(s): Klerman, Daniel, University of Southern California Law School
This dataset includes private prosecutions ("appeals") of homicide, rape, theft, assault, and other crimes from England between the years 1194 and 1294. The dataset includes information about more than 1,200 appeals from 14 English counties. Among the variables are the gender of the appellor, whether the appellor and appellee settled the case, and the jury verdict (if any). The cases are from printed and manuscript sources.
These data are flagged as replication datasets and are distributed exactly as they arrived from the data depositor. ICPSR has not checked or processed this material. Users should consult the investigator(s) if further information is desired.
