Open Domesday

Click here to open site below in a new window

Anna Powell-Smith is now working to make a copyright-free, full-text Latin and English version of Domesday Book available as open data. You can follow progress on Twitter at @opendomesday.


The Open Domesday site gives you access to the first free online copy of Domesday Book.

The site was built as a non-profit project by Anna Powell-Smith, using data collected by Professor John Palmer and a team at the University of Hull during the 1990s to create the Domesday Explorer CD-ROM.

You can copy the images and data under a Creative Commons licence, which essentially means that you can use them for commercial and non-commercial projects alike, as long as you credit Professor John Palmer and George Slater (and, out of courtesy, mention the Open Domesday site).
