Dating back to the 11th century, the Bayeux Tapestry is one of the most famous works of art in the western world from medieval times, The Bayeux Tapestry has attained near iconic status. Although extremely well known -it depicts one of the most famous events in English history and is the subject of numerous studies- many aspects of the Tapestry remain contentious, even enigmatic. In recent years there has been increased interest in the Tapestry and further advances in our understanding of it, with scholars examining how, where and why it was made, questioning its reliability and value as a historical source, and excavating its hidden meanings. A key source for history and for the history of civilisations, this Norman work of art has recently been added to the UNESCO “Memory of the World” Register.
