Description

This volume presents a selection from the classic literature on the tapestry, providing a comprehensive companion to its study. The articles have been carefully chosen in order to provide a strong, balanced coverage of most aspects of the tapestry; all the major themes -- the material fabric of the artefact, its origin, its relation to other early sources, its visual language, the form and function of the inscriptions, the work's general meaning and purpose, and the way it was perceived -- are discussed in authoritative contributions collected here. The volume also includes substantial new essays by the editor on studying the Bayeux tapestry, and on its origin, art, and message. Dr RICHARD GAMESONis Lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Kent at Canterbury. Contributors: RICHARD GAMESON, CHARLES STOTHARD, EDWARD FREEMAN, W.R.
