Domesday Book Now Online

The UK National Archives has released an e-version of the Domesday Book; the web exhibit includes a searchable text, page images, and an excellent introduction to the eleventh-century census. Reuters has more (including a new survey which found that 2% of Britons thought the Domesday Book was a novel written by Dan Brown).
