Not so, since the archives have been expanded.
These aren't the proceedings I needed to use for my thesis in grad school (I was a medievalist) but the wider availability of original legal sources should generate some brilliant new social history over the next few years. I'm really excited about this.
Won't let me search. I am unhappy.
