Little This 'n' That about the Bayeux Tapestry and not a whole story

This page is from 2006 or so, and some of the links are antique, or archives.

DMX krew and the bayeux tapestry combined. (One comment notes "The pics are from the 'Reading Tapestry', a copy created much later on.") DMX krew!?

Bayeux Tapestry with notes. You can see the cloth and stitching.
The link above has a beautiful "retirement" image. Here's a link to the wayback machine save: https://web.archive.org/web/20060302035031/http://www.hastings1066.com/. That website was first archived in 2000. Either that's how old it is, or that's how old the WayBack Machine goes.
