Bayeux Tapestry (1070-1080)
An example of the famous Bayeux Tapestry was requested as a teaching aid for curiculum studies. This section is from the begining of the 230 foot (69 metre) work that relates the story of the bitter conflict betwen King Harold of England and Duke William of Normandy, culminating in William's invasion and conquest of England. The original was worked in wool on silk. This interpretation uses a variety of textiles for easy definition to the touch.
