A very useful Domesday map site

I have just discovered the web site. You type in a place name and it will give you a copy of the original Domesday Book entry, an analysis of what it means, and a map of other Domesday locations in the area. Clicking on the name of a hundred  shows all the places in the hundred, while there are similar maps relating to land ownership. Because of the likely interest in this facility I have added a link to the Key Web Sites list,  and will insert a link on individual place menus when next updating them.
