THE STORY OF THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY: UNRAVELLING THE NORMAN CONQUEST

Political intrigue and treachery, heroism and brutal violence, victory and defeat – all this is depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry, an epic account of one of the pivotal episodes in English history embroidered on a strip of linen. Famously, it shows the stricken Anglo-Saxon king Harold dying on the battlefield of Hastings in 1066 amid a shower of arrows. Who made this remarkable historic and artistic treasure? When, why, where and what for? David Musgrove and Michael Lewis will provide fascinating insights about the deeds of kings as well as aspects of everyday life in medieval Europe.
