Animated Bayeaux Tapestry
Ok, I admit it, I love history and always have. That's probably why I was a history teacher until I got this job. I'll admit it, I love educational technology, too, and when you can find the two together, it's bliss. Today's offering is the Bayeaux Tapestry, animated, from Open Culture's YouTube Channel. The story picks up about half way through the tapestry at the appearance of Halley's Comet and just before the Norman Invasion. My family went to Hastings several years ago, which gives the whole thing a totally different perspective. Enjoy!
