The Bayeux Tapestry (Cancelled) Imogen Corrigan Monday 20 April 2020

This lecture looks at many of the scenes in the tapestry and what might be learned. It is a moral story as well as a tale of kings. Who made it, how and where? Crucial events are omitted and we can only speculate why. Woven from only 10 different colours on linen it remains as vibrant today as it was 900 years ago.
