“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

The Domesday Book

The first complete electronic version of the Domesday Book has been produced by John Palmer, a University of Hull researcher. The electronic version of the 1086 survey of England, which was created by using a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, includes translations and detailed scholarly commentary and makes the record easier to access and understand. You can find it at the Domesday Explorer Website, which also contains some very nice downloadable PowerPoint ‘Web Shows’ entitled variously ‘A brief history of Domesday’, ‘The electronic Domesday’, ‘Domesday people and places’, ‘Domesday England’ and ‘The Norman Yoke’.
