Description

Upon my arrival to London in early 2013, I was reading about Bermondsey and Southwark and William the Conqueror and stumbled upon the Domesday Book. I found the notion of inescapable judgement particularly interesting:

"Domesday" was the Middle English spelling of "Doomsday"… for as the sentence of that strict and terrible last account cannot be evaded by any skilful subterfuge, so when this book is appealed to its sentence cannot be quashed or set aside with impunity. That is why we have called the book 'the Book of Judgement' because its decisions, like those of the Last Judgement, are unalterable – Richard FitzNigel, 1179
