In general, the introductions discuss the administrative history of the county; the Hundreds or Wapentakes, their rubrication, order, and revised name-forms; the state of the manuscript for the county; holdings recorded in other counties; related or 'satellite' texts', where relevant; the editorial history of earlier versions of the notes, and the current state of the revision; and a variety of other topics of significance to which the Domesday text refers or illuminates. The introductions have been revised to varying degrees for this edition by Dr Frank and Mrs Caroline Thorn.
