There's two questions to answer about this book. Will it tell you anything you didn't know already about the Bayeux Tapestry ? Is it a good read ? The answer to both questions is a resounding yes. As you read you will find yourself sucked willingly into the world in which the tapestry was created, as Andrew Bridgeford skillfully guides you through the Tapestry's many secrets and mysteries. Some of the questions about the Tapestry we now know the answers to, and to those that we don't Andrew Bridgeford patiently and clearly offers us suggestions and solutions, based on painstaking scholarship.
I enjoyed this book, bought on a whim on a post christmas shopping spree, so much that I have since read several others on the same subject, and even offered the Tapestry as a specialist subject on Mastermind. This is a fine book.
