If it is, could you play on the fact that you (like William) don't know anything about them. Appoint one person from each block of tables (or rows) to write down some basic facts about them and send them up to you. You can then work out how much you're going to tax them (or something) based on the response?
Not much, but it might be a spark you can build something from?

There are some video clips on line at learning curve focus on domesday that show a reeve and a commissioner explaining what they did and why - it was the best I have managed on Domesday so far - after 11 years teaching it - it is still the lesson I want to ditch and change every year!
This is what I have come up with so far - mainly discussion based as only 25 minutes. Any feedback/criticism would be greatly appreciated!
