The Animated Bayeux Tapestry
The Bayeux Tapestry is still on my list of things to see before I’m dead, but this will have to do for now.
The Animated Bayeux Tapestry was created as a student project while at Goldsmiths College. Just as the historic original embroidery does, the animation depicts the lead up to to the Norman Invasion of Britain in 1066. Starts about halfway through the original work at the appearance of Haley’s Comet and concludes at the Battle of Hastings. Marc Sylvan redid the soundtrack to include original music and sound effects.
