Domesday online

August 4, 2006 at 10:49 am 2 comments

The national archives at Kew have put the Domesday book online. Which is pretty cool. Actually, the national archives site is pretty interesting if you’re into checking out strange bits of british history. It is interesting to see that you are able to request files that MI5 had on various spies at different politically unstable times in Britain. Also pretty cool is to see that most of the documents about the “feckless” female school absconders, who were allegedly responsible for spreading venereal disease among American GI soldiers, are still closed and unavailable under the freedom of information act. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it…
