Domesday book: a complete translation
Domesday Book, compiled in 1086 at the behest of William the Conqueror, has been described as "the most valuable piece of antiquity possessed by any nation" (David Hume) and viewed by historians as the final act of the Norman conquest. Produced under the supervision of the most renowned Domesday scholars, this authoritative translation of the complete Domesdayoffers a remarkable portrait of England in the late eleventh century.
