Names! Homeschooling the Domesday Book!

This fourteenth episode in the special series of Histories of the Unexpected Homeschooling explores NAMES and THE DOMESDAY BOOK! The Unexpected History of NAMES is all about Viking nicknames, titles for royalty and the aristocracy, it’s about women being hidden from history (think the name-changing Bess of Hardwick), and Scandinavian linguistic dominance across Europe. James and Sam explore the fascinating history of the Domesday Book through the subject of names, including how it was made and why, what it was used for, and the process of collecting the information that went into it. What does it tell us about Norman England? And what does it leave out? Learn how to write your very own Domesday Survey of where you live!
