    I thought this might be little more than a dull panorama of the original tapestry - instead, Lindybeige gives an entertaining narration of the events shown, with a little added animation:

    Highly entertaining! But any moment now HareBrain will come along and tell us the chap couldn't pronounce Bosham properly... :p

    It's weird, I saw this vid a few days ago. Then looking for birthday cards I noticed there is a whole range of 'Bayeux tapestry'-type cards done in a similar humour to the video. (Well, close enough). I did not check to see if Lindybeige was the author of the cards....

    Hilarious. Reminds me of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" of the Rocky and Bullwinckle show.

    Yet, I find that I have a much deeper understanding of the history and the Tapestry.
