A system of law introduced into England as a result of its invasion and conquest by the Danes during the eighth and ninth centuries, which occurred primarily in some of the midland counties and on the eastern coast.

Danelage provided basic values and customs to which the later Norman conquerors of England added their customs to provide the foundation of ENGLISH LAW.
