2 Reviews
In a series of scenes, with a running text in Latin, the Tapestry relates the invasion of England by William of Normandy and his victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. This book makes it accessible and allows readers to appreciate how totally absorbing it is. The Tapestry is reproduced in colour, with captions on a fold-out page for easy reference. A second reproduction of the Tapestry in black and white has a detailed accompanying commentary. Sir David Wilson, former Director of the British Museum, provides an up-to-date summary of the historical evidence, explains each episode and covers related topics such as the costumes, armour, ships, buildings and customs.
