Sunday Drive: Norman Boat, Bayeux - 2009

It actually was a Sunday when Bonnie and I visited the most famous embroidery in the world at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in Normandy. This recreation of one of the boats used in the Norman Invasion was displayed in the courtyard of the museum.*

[From my personal collection]

If you haven't seen it (or even if you have), this animated version of the Bayeux Tapestry done as a student project at Goldsmith's College, University of London, is fun to watch.

*When I checked out he street view of this courtyard on Google Earth the boat wasn't there--perhaps they store it indoors during the winter?
