Since its information was never entered into Great Domesday, the Little Domesday became the final record for those counties. The books in the Alecto set provide introductions, translations of the Domesday leaves and indexes. The cases contain pamphlets describing the contents of the cases, full-size reproductions of the Domesday leaves, bound in quires, and maps of Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and England at the time of Domesday.
