‘Domesday Book re‐examined’ introduces the reader to the nature of Domesday Book (DB), the traditional interpretation of DB, and the historical background to the Conqueror's great survey of 1086, together with the aims and methods of our enquiry. While DB is the greatest data source for any pre‐modern society, its economic and fiscal relationships have been misinterpreted by conventional wisdom.
