David Roffe is a historian who has worked widely in archaeological units and more recently as a research fellow in the University of Sheffield. His research interests include the Danelaw, landscape history, church history, and insanity in the Middle Ages. Much of his work, however, has focused on the inquest as an instrument of government. He is, with Professor Edmund King, co-director of the Sheffield Hundred Rolls Project, which aims to edit unpublished verdicts from various thirteenth-century inquests, but his main area of study has been Domesday. He has published extensively on different aspects of the record and has edited five volumes in the Alecto County Edition of the Domesday text. David Roffe remains an honorary research fellow at the University of Sheffield and now divides his time between writing and looking after his two sons.
