In this chapter the regulations concerning shipwreck, jettison and ship collision included in the written sea laws from the whole of northern Europe are analysed and compared. With regards to all three subjects, the regulations show some variation between them. Some of these variations between the regulations can be explained by considering the changes in the organisation of sea shipping in the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries. Others cannot, however, and it is concluded that there was no complete commonality between the written laws of northern Europe.
