The Bayeux Tapestry and the Battle of Hastings 1066., English
The Bayeux Tapestry and the Battle of Hastings 1066
by Mogens Rud

5th edition 2004, Format: 17.5 x 24.5 cm, Paperback, Illustrated in colour,
104 pages

The oldest strip cartoon in the world.
The Bayeux Tapestry is unique, not only by virtue of its age, but also because
it is an artistic and cultural testimonial which gives a startling insight into
peoples lives in the late Viking Age.

The 70 metre long tapestry is illustrated here in its entirety. Each complete
scene, with the text belonging to it, is reproduced on a double page of the book
- exactly as the artist almost one thousand years ago would have wished.

The beautiful and often dramatic pictures are presented and explained by the
Danish archaeologist Mogens Rud. The author provides background material on
contemporary political and dynastic conflicts; he gives a vivid account of the
living conditions of the Vikings, who are so realistically portrayed in the
Bayeux Tapestrys multicoloured embroidery.
