The Bayeux Tapestry : The World’s Oldest Comic Strip Eveline Eaton Tuesday 11 February 2020

Most of us have heard of Sellar and Yeatman’s “1066 and All That” without necessarily knowing the exact facts about this momentous event.  This lecture will present in detail the historical, cultural and artistic aspects of that unique masterpiece, the Bayeux Tapestry, which provides posterity with such a startling testimonial of peoples’ lives in the late Viking age.
