Description
A definitive guide to the 1,000-year story of the Bayeux Tapestry, benefitting from the latest research and expert analysis. Popularly known as a tapestry telling of the tale of the last Anglo-Saxon king of England — killed in battle in 1066, and the victory of his Norman adversary — but the ‘tapestry’ is actually an embroidery; it wasn't made in Bayeux and three-quarters of it focuses upon political machinations on either side of the Channel. This engaging, scholarly text seeks to offer a guide to the full story the textile tells and the many surprises it still contains. With specially commissioned colour photographs and timeline of key events.
