The judicial archives reveal a fragmented world. The events are mundane and their occurrence beyond commonplace. The characters are ordinary and the documentary record of them is fragmentary. This chapter describes the pleasure at discovering how in these tatters of lives and scraps of disputes, found in bulk, human defiance and human misery can be found.

Keywords:   judicial archives, framents, documentary record, human misery, human defiance
