CANCELLED (The Bayeux Tapestry) Imogen Corrigan Tuesday 21 April 2020

The lecture looks in detail at many of the scenes in the tapestry and explores what might be learned from this depiction of a turning point in our history. It is a moral story showing that good cannot come to those who break their word and a story of kings, chivalry and ambition.
