Domesday Book

Post by Rowan » Wed February 2nd, 2011, 5:32 pm

I recently bought a copy of British History for Dummies because I was confused about the Wars of the Roses and also just enjoy reading about British history.

I've managed to clear up the confusion with the Wars of the Roses, but something else caught my eye and I've not been able to find anything via Google search so I thought I'd come here and ask.

In the bit about the Norman Conquest and the subsequent creation of the Domesday Book, the author states that the book was last used in 1982 to settle a dispute. I'm curious to know what the dispute was about. Does anyone know anything about this?
