Message: Tapestry from Bayeux
Tapestry from Bayeux besides of the detailed plan of events displays many symbolic connotations, it is adorned by the real scenes from the temporary life,
and this way it makes up a wonderful material for the usage both during the history and art classes. I would like to indicate the link which seems to be very
useful for the teachers in the school:

Message: I like very much the way the Bayeux Tapestry is presented at - it is very interesting, original, even colorful, especially suited for a teenage audience. I find the choice of font very appropriate. The information about the Bayeux Tapestry is systematical, at the same time comprehensive and presented in a fascinating manner, the images of the scenes help the reader acquire visual notice of this work of art.

Message: Simply great! This web-source can make the in-depth research of the Bayeux Tapestry easy, amusing and quite educational. The multitude of images presents the entire tapestry, while the highlights enable us to find out particular details behind most of the presented scenes. An excellent educational and self-educational tool.
