"The Bayeux Tapestry presents its story of the Norman Conquest of England in words of such simplicity and in images of such power that is has long determined
the view we take of the momentous events of 1064-66.

It transforms the way in which students and teachers alike will be able to approach, to use and to enjoy one of the most remarkable of all our sources for the Middle Ages" --Jewel case.
