Domesday Book: A Complete Translation (Penguin Classics)
Domesday Book has been described as 'the most valuable piece of antiquity possessed by any nation.' (David Hume) But a complete translation has never been available before at an affordable price. Penguin's edition will change that.
Compiled in a matter of months in 1086 at the behest of William the Conqueror, Domesday quickly established itself as document of immense legal importance. It was last consulted for legal precedent in 1982.It is also the most remarkable portrait of England in thelate eleventh century.
The publication of a complete translation of Great and Little Domesday is already being eagerly anticipated by historians. There are advance quotes from Norman Davies, Michael Wood, Roy Strong and Antonia Fraser.
'Domesday Book is THE book of English history... A must for scholars and history buffs everywhere.' Michael Wood
