Unravelling the Bayeux Tapestry, episode 3: What story does the Tapestry tell?
Join us for the third episode of Unravelling the Bayeux Tapestry...
In recounting the Norman invasion of 1066, the Bayeux Tapestry tells a story that we’re all familiar with. But, look a bit closer and it’s not so simple. In this episode, we investigate whose version of events the Tapestry presents, and how its account of 1066 tallies up with other documentary sources.
Dr David Musgrove and Professor Michael Lewis are joined in the discussion by Professor Elisabeth van Houts and Dr Leonie Hicks.
