Editorial Reviews

Review

`there is intriguing material here even for the uninitiated.' Medieval Review, 28/03/2001

`With meticulous care Roffe unscrambles the chronology of completion' Medieval Review, 28/03/2001

`Roffe's study helps to reconstruct a tentative chronology of the writing.' Medieval Review, 28/03/2001

`This is an imaginative and courageous book, and a valuable contribution to Domesday scholarship.' Reviews in History, October 2001

`The book is the product of very considerable learning. Not the least of its virtues is its extensive bibliography.' Reviews in History, October 2001

`This is by any standards a remarkable thesis. To read it is to feel as if the landscape of Domesday scholarship has been struck by a tidal wave: one feels compelled to return to that landscape to see how many of the familiar structures of Domesday historiography have been swept away, and whether some of them will remain standing when the water eventually recedes.' Reviews in History, October 2001

`develops a radically new interpretation of Domesday Book' Northern History, XXXVIII

`This book challenges most of the current orthodoxies of Domesday scholarship ... Controversial though it is, no one with a serious interest in Domesday Book and the society it documents should ignore this book ... Dr Roffe has written a stimulating work which will cause scholars to revise much of what they currently believe, and to question much else.' J.J.N.Palmer, EHR, April 2001

`By marking the ways that the scribe modified his systems of notation and organization, Roffe's study helps to reconstruct a tentative chronology of the writing. ... With meticulous care Roffe unscrambles the chronology of completion and succeeds at least in identifying the early quires.' Emily Albu, University of California, Davis

`Roffe has not written a book for the curious nonspecialist who wants a learned introduction to Domesday studies. This is a technical work that assumes considerable familiarity with the concepts and language of land tenure in medieval England. Still, there is intriguing material here even for the uninitiated.' Emily Albu, University of California, Davis
