Our earliest public record, Domesday, is a truly iconic document and has held a special place in the public imagination since it was written over 900 years ago.
Dr Jessica Nelson, Medieval Records Specialist at The National Archives, will focus on Domesday’s life over the past nine centuries; its uses, and anecdotes from its later life in the Public Record Office, all through the lens of our documents.
Accompanying the talk will be a display of related material, including the beautiful illuminated 13th-century Abbreviato of Domesday.
Dr Nelson featured in the BBC mockumentary series Cunk on Britain last year, where she debunked some of the more extravagant myths surrounding Domesday for spoof TV personality Philomena Cunk.
