The letters of ‘P’ and ‘E’ of PASE have been drawn based on the design of illuminated letters in Cambridge, Trinity College, Cambridge B.11.9 (Amalarius, De ecclesiastici officiis). The right-hand side of the banner draws on a detail from the Bayeux Tapestry (late eleventh century), reproduced by special permission of the City of Bayeux. The image in question shows a group of people witnessing the coronation of King Harold II at Westminster Abbey on 6 January 1066: this group may be taken to symbolize the body of pre-Conquest landholders whose estates are recorded in Domesday Book, and whose identification PASE Domesday is designed to facilitate.
