What is the Doomsday Book?

The Doomsday Book refers to assessment of land and livestock held on the behalf of William l of England. Once in power, he sent surveyors all throughout England to take account of what each person owned in terms of stock and property, so he could figure how much they were to pay in taxes. Whatever a persons determined wealth was written to be was the final word and there was no option of protesting or correcting any mistakes. Boy, this makes me appreciate the IRS!
