The Bayeux Tapestry is one of the most celebrated surviving works of art, yet much about the object itself remains a mystery. Who commissioned it, and where, when, and why was it made? In this introduction to the Tapestry, Michael Lewis looks not only at the story of the Tapestry itself, but also explores the design and production of this great artifact, and looks at how reliable the evidence it presents for 1066 actually is. This is a fresh and dynamic approach to one of the 11th century’s most famous survivors.
