Exon Domesday: The Key to the Conqueror's Survey

Tue 17th April 2018
Exeter Cathedral, Exeter, EX1 1HS

A lecture by Professor Stephen Baxter (University of Oxford)

Exon Domesday contains unique information about politics, society, and the landscape of South-West Britain a thousand years ago. It is important simply as the first record of thousands of settlements. As the only surviving source for Great Domesday Book for anywhere in England, it also provides vital clues to help us understand the workings of that great campaign of pre-modern data collection.
