Domesday Book to star in our Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition

Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition at the British Library

A loan of one of the most iconic records in the world

Published date:

The National Archives will loan Domesday, the most famous and earliest surviving public record, to the British Library for our landmark exhibition, Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms.

Dr Claire Breay, curator of Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms and Head of Ancient, Early Modern and Medieval Manuscripts here at the Library, said of the loan: 

Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms will be the most spectacular exhibition to date of manuscripts and related objects covering the whole Anglo-Saxon period. The evidence preserved uniquely in Domesday plays a crucial role in the telling of that story. This is an incredible and rare opportunity for visitors to the British Library to see it on display."

Tickets are now on sale here.
