The Bayeux Museum has a magnificently designed and narrated display of the Bayeux Tapestry, really an amazing embroidery, over a thousand years old. How it survived through the centuries in a miracle. It was sewed using only 4 simple stitches and 10 colors - and was created before the discovery of perspective in art. Occasional Latin text is stitched, but the vivid images are the primary focus.
As you walk past its many panels, a thoughtful curator tells the tale conveyed by this stitchery -- the history of when the Norman, William the Conqueror, was called to become king of England. This is a not-to-be-missed wonder!
