Look inside the book:
Certain changes of the year were celebrated, such as Easter, named for the Goddess of the Dawn, which occurred in the east (after lent); May Day celebrating the revival of life; Lammas around July, when the wheat crop was ready for harvesting; and on October 31 the Celtic eve of Samhain, when the spirits of the dead came back to visit homes and demand food or else cast an evil spell on the refusing homes; and at which masked and costumed inhabitants representing the souls of the dead paraded to the outskirts of the settlements to lead the ghosts away from their homes; and at which animals and humans, who might be deemed to be possessed by spirits, were sacrificed or killed perhaps as examples, in huge bonfires bonefires as those assembled looked out for spirits and evil beings. ...If a man lie with a ceorl's birele female cupbearer, let him make bot with 6 shillings; with a slave of the second class, 50 scaetts; with one of the third, 30 scaetts. ... If any one be the first to invade a man's tun premises, let him make bot with 6 shillings; let him who follows, with 3 shillings; after, each, a shilling.
