We consider noncomplete continuous and algebraic lattices and prove that finitely generated free lattices are algebraic. We also study the Lawson topology, the second most important topology in the theory of continuous domains, on finitely presented lattices. In particular, we prove that algebraic finitely presented lattices are linked bicontinuous and the Lawson topology on these lattices coincides with the interval topology. Several examples of non-distributive and noncomplete algebraic and continuous lattices are given in the paper.
