    Several related documents survive, one of which is the Exon Domesday, an early draft of the return for the circuit comprising the counties of SomersetDorsetWiltshireDevonand Cornwall. Dunworthy, a professor and friend of Kivrin's, works to find someone who can read the time machine and determine exactly what year Kivrin arrived in.

This survey and audit would clearly establish who held what, in the wake of the Norman Conquest itself This may be an exaggeration of what actually happened, but it does show how the survey was perceived at the time.
