Domesday Book

Saturday, August 05, 2006

The famous Domesday Book, which provides a snapshot of 11th. century England, went on-line Aug 4th 2006. This was an inventory commissioned by William the Conqueror in 1085 following his 1066 invasion of England. Curiously, the whole of London and Winchester were omitted; some speculate that the statisticians of the day could not cope with the sheer volume of data. Research capabilty is currently restricted to a place name or person. Website is www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/domesday
