I thought I would pass along the title of a book I found on the "new titles" shelf at
A Needle in the Right Hand of God: the Norman Conquest of 1066 and the Making and
Meaning of the Bayeux Tapestry by R. Howard Bloch. Published by Random House in
2006. ISBN 1-4000-6549-6.
I thought it was interesting, because he discusses the political scene at the time,
speculates on who, how, and why made, talks some about the supplies and method, and
the preservation since it's making.
I am responding top the new book, in my years working towards degrees in
history and English literature I have used many books by R. Howard Bloch.
His writing is very informative and thoroughly researched. He is considered
a leading scholar of medieval studies in both fields that I study in and for
once my professors could not fault me a source. I look forwards to hunting
down this new book and reading it with as much enjoyment as I have his other
