Long Description
A remarkable work, the Domesday Book contains detailed and comprehensive information on ownership, income, resources, and fiscal responsibilities for almost evey manor of Norman England in 1086. The bewildering and voluminous data of the Domesday Book has baffled economists in the past, but Snooks and McDonald have compiled an unequaled new interpretation of this ancient work now in its 900th anniversary. Using modern economic theory and statistical techniques, the authors reappraise the relationship between manorial revenue and resources to attain a new perspective on the English economy between 1066 and 1086.
Long Description
This book provides a new interpretation of the English economy between 1066 and 1086 by using methods not previously applied to Economic theory and statistical techniques to reappraise the information recorded in the Domesday book. It is the first major reinterpretation of the Domesday economy since the work of J.H. Round and F.W. Maitland almost one hundred years ago, and its publication in 1986 coincided with the 900th anniversary of Domesday.
