Domesday in the Public Record

February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£10

A National Archives talk and document display

Domesday is a truly iconic document which 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, focuses on Domesday’s life over the past nine centuries.

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.

At the National Archives, Bessant Drive, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 4DU.

District line and Overground stations: Kew Gardens.

Tickets £10 / Concessions £8.00
