(p.1) Introduction
Localized Law

Kimberley Czajkowski

Oxford University Press

The Introduction lays out the general context of the archives. The history of the region is briefly set out, and the extent of the effect of the annexation of the Nabataean Kingdom in 106 CE is considered. An overview of the contents of the archives themselves and the community they evidence is next provided, with a view to delineating these people’s economic, social, cultural, and religious backgrounds. The ‘multi-legal’ approach adopted throughout the book is then detailed in the context of the history of scholarship on the archives in particular, and on Roman law and local law in the provinces more generally.

Keywords:   history, archive, multi-legal, Roman law, Nabataean Kingdom, annexation
