Abstract

This article re-examines and further challenges the enduring argument that the evidence of manorial value depreciation in Domesday Book can be used to map the route followed by the Norman army towards London after its victory at the battle of Hastings in 1066. It also offers a new interpretation of the direction of the Norman campaign and the rationale that influenced it. This is based on a consideration of the needs and experiences of marching armies from Roman times to the late Middle Ages, the major sources for the Norman invasion, the nature of the places visited by the Norman army in 1066, and the transportation network, landscape, and meteorological circumstances in which this army operated.
