This introductory chapter explains why the returns of the 1279–80 inquiry are called the hundred rolls and incorporates a map of surviving rolls. It compares them with Domesday Book, asking why they are less well known and sets them in the context of other 13th-century inquiries. Their importance and details of previous editions and studies are given.
