A book which recorded a survey of land in England
The Domesday Book of 1086 which is often misspelt and mis-pronounced as the doomsday book.
the doomsday book was made in 1086 during William the Conquerors reign. it was to record who owned pieces of land and what taxes he could raise. William died before it was finished.
From the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, it is known that the planning for the survey was conducted in 1085, and from the colophon of the book it is known that the survey was completed in 1086. It is not known when exactly Domesday Book was compiled, but the entire work appears to have been copied out by one person.
yes , lots of people liked the doomsday book
it was written by an observer of the survey that "there was no single hide nor a yard of land, nor indeed one ox nor one cow nor one pig which was left out". The grand and comprehensive scale on which the Domesday survey took place and the irreversible nature of the information collected led people to compare it to the Last Judgement, or 'Doomsday', described in the Bible, when the deeds of Christians written in the Book of Life were to be placed before God for judgement. This name was not adopted until the late 12th Century
The pages were made of sheep skin, and the words written in black and red ink by a quill.
