Want to learn more about the Domesday Book and how one of the most important documents in history was created?  Find out how at the Heritage Skills Centre this August.

Domesday Book

Three dates in August, book now

For three dates in August, the centre at Lincoln Castle will be running specialist courses based around the visit of the Domesday Book, in which participants can find out first-hand the techniques used to put the historic document together and have a go themselves!

Starting on 9 August, Explorations: Medieval styles of bookbinding, focuses on exploring how and what holds medieval books together, with informal discussions and demonstrations. The course runs from 1-4pm and costs £15.

For those who are more interested in getting hands on experience, All bound up: Limp Vellum binding on 18 August and All bound up: Medieval wooden covered book on 19 August will allow participants to get to grips with historic techniques. Both courses run from 10am-5pm and cost £70.

Amy Knychala, Heritage Skills Centre Manager

“With the castle hosting the iconic public record that is the Domesday Book, we are now giving our visitors the chance to get to grips with what it takes to put together such an important document and take home their own piece of history.

“Our courses are for everyone, from beginners to pros so if you fancy learning a new skill or developing an existing one, don’t miss your chance and book onto a course today! Places are limited!

The Domesday Book will be at Lincoln Castle until the 3 September. Get your tickets to see Domesday by purchasing an all-inclusive ticket to Lincoln Castle. Book online at for a 10% discount. Tickets include a free return visit within six months.
