The Danelaw , as recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, is a historical name given to the part of England in which the laws of the Danes held sway and dominated those of the Anglo-Saxons. Danelaw contrasts West Saxon law and Mercian law. The term is first recorded in the early eleventh century as Dena lage.
Modern historians have extended the term to a geographical designation. The areas that constituted the Danelaw lie in northern and eastern England.
