The Mystery of the Bayeux Tapestry

Ten years of research have convinced David Bernstein that this unique 'tapestry' (in fact an embroidery) has a more complex significance than appears on the surface, its apparently naive images actually concealing layers of deeper meaning. To solve the msytery, the author investigates the unusual circumstances in which the Tapestry was made, its distinctive style and foramt, and how its version of history frequently departs from accounts by contemporary authors. This contreversial and completely original examination of one of the great landmarks of history will fascinate scholars and lay public alike.
