The Domesday Book, compiled in 1086, is the first wide-ranging description of the English landscape. Yet, because its origins remain opaque, the interpretation of its entries is often unclear. This course explores its strengths and weaknesses through what it says about settlements and agriculture, landholding and population, religion and industry, and how each can be interpreted on the ground.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
