Commissioned by William the Conquerer in 1085, the Domesday Book can now be read online! Search for your village, town or city and see the original page where details about the area in the 11th century are recorded, and get a tranlsation into modern English. The National Archives, which has the document on display in its museum, also provides plenty of background information about Domesday.
