Bayeux Tapestry

1066 - 1183

Why is it canonical?

Much like the illuminations in manuscripts seen throughout the centuries, the Bayeux Tapestry famously constructs a historic narrative about the relationship between the English and the Normans, all in embroidery and weaving. Because of its medium, its imagery is unique in all of cultural history.
