Lori's Book Nook

A Milestone

Posted on: August 8, 2006

In so many ways, the Doomsday book is important. It is the earliest surviving public record in Britain. It’s history. Public policy. Art.

The National Archives now has it online, and searchable. Check it out here.

Thanks to my buddy Nag, on her Private Book Club blog, for bringing this to my attention last week. Since then, I’ve seen it in two newspapers.

Good. I’m glad it’s newsworthy.
