About this book
Formely entitled "Domesday" this book goes back to the original Norman document of 1086 giving a unique insight into England at the time of the Norman conquest.
In 1806, Domesday Book, perhaps the most remarkable historical document in existence, was compiled. This tremendous story of England and its people was made at the behest of the Norman king William the Conqueror. It was called Domesday, the day of judgement, because 'like the day of judgement, its decisions are unalterable'.
