The Conquerors’ Commissioners: Unlocking the Domesday Survey of SW England, is a resource for the study of the Exon Domesday Book. Through close examination of the codicological, palaeographic and other features of the charters, the project will explore the evidence for developments in government during a crucial period in history.
This project website will include a complete digital facsimile and new codicological and palaeographical descriptions of the manuscript, a full new text and translation. Samples of this material will be made available as the work progresses, with the full website scheduled for release in September 2017.
The project is funded by the AHRC (2014-2017) and is a collaboration between scholars from the King’s College London, the University of Oxford, and the Friends and Dean and Chapter of Exeter Cathedral.
