While still dwelling in their German homelands before their migration to England in the 5th century and later the Saxons applied old German tribal laws that were passed on to the next generation like also their legends, by telling and keeping in mind. There the crimes murder and rape of women were punished with execution. The first written law compendium in German culture was the Lex Burgundionum of 500 AD, also called Lex Gundobad. Gundobad (474-516) was the Burgunder tribe king at that time. This law book is regarded to be the oldest in existance. It deals with the relations of humans amongst each other and the regulation of property issues. The fact that it was written down alone indicates the Roman influence it already showed.
