Help Main Page Return to Domesday data



Domesday Book is the main source of our knowledge of the administrative geography of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman England. Without Domesday, the broad framework would be known, but little of the vast amount of detail which Domesday supplies on almost every aspect of ancient territories and administrative units.

For these administrative units and ancient divisions, see:

early administrative units Amounderness
Archenfield between the Ribble and the Mersey
castlery commote
counties Craven
