The Bayeux Tapestry – the World’s Oldest Comic-Strip
(Everyone is aware about “1066 and all that” without necessarily knowing the exact facts about this momentous event. This lecture will present in detail the historical, cultural and artistic aspects of that unique masterpiece, the Bayeux Tapestry which provides posterity with such a startling testimonial of peoples’ lives in the late Viking Age.  Whether or not this embroidery will actually be shown in Britain in the early 2020s, this talk is one of my most popular with Arts Societies.)
