'An Archaeological Study of the Bayeux Tapestry' provides a unique re-examination of this famous piece of work through the historical geography and archaeology of the tapestry. Trevor Rowley is the fi... rst author to have analysed the tapestry through the landscapes, buildings and structures shown, such as towns and castles, while comparing them to the landscapes, buildings, ruins and earthworks which can be seen today. By comparing illustrated extracts from the tapestry to historical and contemporary illustrations, maps and reconstructions Rowley is able to provide the reader with a unique visual setting against which they are able to place the events on the tapestry. This approach allows Rowley to challenge a number of generally accepted assumptions regarding the location of several scenes in the tapestry, most controversially suggesting that William may never have gone to Hastings at all. Finally, Rowley tackles the missing end of the tapestry, suggesting the places and events which would have been depicted on this portion of William's journey to Westminster. AUTHOR: Trevor Rowley was formerly Deputy Director of Continuing Education at Oxford University. He is now Emeritus Fellow of Kellogg College and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He has travelled and lectured widely in Europe and the United States and has directed excavations and fieldwork projects in England and France. He is the author of more than a dozen books on the Normans and on landscape history. 100-150 illustrations
