The Norman Conquest from the English view
A most interesting read. Besides getting a good look at this tapestry, the author provides good commentary on what the tapestry shows and how this has been understood concerning the Norman conquest in 1066. Bridgeford goes to some effort to trace the history of the tapestry itself and how it has been understood with arguments concerning who various figures presented are as well as the people who may have been behind the making of this tapestry. Bridgeford also provides quite a bit of good but perhaps little known history -- and a history from the underside, that of the English. Recommended.Was this review helpful?
