Domesday Book, England's oldest and most famous public record, describes the condition of England south of the river Tees in 1066 and 1086. William the Conqueror's commissioners conducted their survey so thoroughly that "not one ox, nor one cow, nor one pig" was left unrecorded. It is the primary source for several centuries of English history, having bequeathed an unparalleled body of evidence.
