William the Conqueror took a census of England in order to tax properly. What was this census called?
A. Magna Carta
B. Doomsday Book
C. New Testament
D. The Stock List
To find out about the lands of England and their owners, so that everybody might be made to pay taxes, William appointed officers in all the towns to report what estates there were, who owned them, and what they were worth. The reports were copied into two volumes, called the "Domesday Book." This book showed that England at that time had a population of a little more than a million.
