The Domesday Book is available free online for the first time after the 900-year-old parchment papers were turned into a database that can be read on the internet.

The Domesday Book, the oldest and most famous public record in Britain, was based on the 1086 survey of England which covered 13,418 settlements south of the rivers Ribble and Tees.
