Unique in medieval history, the Domesday Survey is a fundamental part of the English heritage. There is no comparable medieval record of a complete country, manor-by-manor. Over 12,500 entries in 40 gazetteers bear witness to the radical changes in land ownership after the Norman Conquest in 1066. This course will describe what the book actually is, how it was compiled, and it will analyse some of the entries, especially those referring to York and Yorkshire.
This course will be delivered via Zoom. Students joining the course will need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone (essential) and a webcam (desirable) as well as a reliable broadband connection.
