Domesday Relaunched

The BBC opened it's Domesday Relaunched site in May 2011:


The BBC site is a partial loading of all the data in the 1986 Domesday project which gathered words and pictures from across the UK to be put on Videodisc. School children were heavily involved at the time and there will be many who vividly remember making contributions. Their stories about the project would be worth retelling in the Community Archives.

Domesday Update, June 2018.
From 2018 the Domesday Reloaded website can be viewed in The National Archives' UK Government Web Archive. You can search for BBC Domesday Reloaded words, place names, content and pictures here: https://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/search/result/?q=domesday&site=bbc.co.uk
