This map shows the outline of Andredsweald in 1066AD created by plotting the domesday villages and making the assumption
that the area that has very few villages is forested.
The plotted data is an extract from the Open Domesday Book.
As you can see the plot of the manors actually seems to correlate quite closely with the green shaded area, the only villages
within the area seem to be very small settlement which were likely to be foresters, miners, charcoal and small settlements.
Total Population(ex slaves) of the 1295 Domesday Villages in 1086AD shown is 34429
This would equate to a Fyrd(national service) of approximately 2065 soldiers.
Please Note that the estimate for the Fyrd is based on 6% of the
population(excluding Priests and Slaves) being eligible for military duties.
