Domesday Book at Lincoln Castle

27 May 2017 - 03 Sep 2017

Domesday Book makes a once in a lifetime visit to Lincoln Castle this summer.

Battles and Dynasties explores the conflict for the crown from Domesday to present day through fascinating  documents, paintings and artefacts each fundamental to our local and national heritage. It's an unmissable opportunity to see significant pieces on our doorstep here in Lincolnshire, including major objects that are rarely shown outside of London and some things from private collections that are never on display.

After exploring the major exhibition, take a five minute walk up Steep Hill to witness the earliest surviving public record in person – Domesday Book, is making a once in a lifetime trip to Lincoln Castle

This is a rare and unmissable opportunity to see Domesday on display, in a castle built by the same king that ordered the document. The iconic document will be on display in the David P J Ross Magna Carta Vault, on loan to Lincoln Castle from its permanent home at The National Archives, London.

Domesday is an icon of English history, giving a fascinating insight into life over 900 years ago. Commissioned in 1086 by William the Conqueror, it gave the king a picture of his realm by recording the taxable value and resources of all the boroughs and manors in the land.
