Taken from the Domesday Book of 1086, when part of Witham was an important manor belonging to King William the Conqueror.
The text is shown in the booklet in several ways. There is a copy of the original medieval Latin writing, a typescript of what it says in Latin, and a translation of what it means in English. There are notes and maps also.
Like many publications, this was written to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the Domesday survey of 1086, and at the same time there were a number of enjoyable meetings and events in Essex.
