Survey of the West from the Domesday Book on display

Pages from a survey of the west of England from the Domesday Book have gone on display at the Museum of Somerset.

The Exon document is the most detailed surviving draft of Domesday Book and covers the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, although not all of it has survived.

South West Heritage Trust said without it "we would know far less about south west England in those turbulent years of conquest and change".
