New Exhibit – Medieval English Land Grants

Land Grant image Have you ever wondered how real estate transactions were made in times long past of lords and ladies, castles and jousts? What did a land sales contract or lease look like centuries before the development of standardized printed real estate forms? Then stop by one of the library's touch-screen kiosks or go to our online gallery and explore our latest digital exhibit – Medieval English Land Grants from Special Collections. The exhibit features several land transfer documents from the reign of Edward I (1272-1307) that are part of Georgetown Law Library's collections of rare and historical legal materials.
