The beasts of battle gather in the tapestry borders.

Ravens, wolves, eagles. All creatures – common, fantastic, wild, domestic – hold their stitched breath as the battle gathers

Until at last, William and Harold face each other over some few feet of linen.The embroidered King wants to finish his church at Westminster. The English Earl and Norman Duke want the English throne. The hawk wants to be out in the fields, hunting for mice.

Interweaving the fables of the Bayeux Tapestry’s margins and human narratives with Anglo-Saxon poetry and English folk song, this one-woman show by storyteller and academic, Dr Daisy Black (English, Wolverhampton), stitches together a vivid, epic and moving account of the events leading up to the 1066 Battle of Hastings.
Seventy metres of history in a single hour!

This story lasts for 60 minutes and is suitable for ages 12 and up.
