Bayeux Tapestry Activites
These two resources look at the story of the Norman Invasion through the Bayeux Tapestry. They can be adapted to include a sequencing task. Pupils are asked to check their understanding of visual sources by labelling segments of the tapestry accurately. More able learners can expand on the provided labels. The famous "death scene" is also assessed and acts as an exercise in introducing pupils to the fact that sources are easy to interpret in a number of different ways.
