This tremendous survey of England and its people was made at the behest of the Norman, William the Conqueror. Michael Wood's Domesday: A Search for the Roots of England is a study of the ancient manuscript and an attempt to analyse the world that the Domesday Book portrayed. He uses the Domesday record to examine Norman society, and also to penetrate beyond it to the Anglo-Saxon, Roman and Iron Age cultures that preceded it. Michael Wood is also author of In Search of the Dark Ages and In Search of the Trojan War.
