Something for a Wednesday… the Bayeux Tapestry animated!

12 October 2011

By Lisa Marie Griffith

Hit a mid-week slump? Wednesday is my busiest lecture day so I always find it a little difficult to be inspired after all my prerp on Monday and Tuesday. Here is something a little bit more fun for those of us feeling a little uninspired this Wednesday (via the website Open Culture). This is a wonderful and very faithful animation of the Bayeux Tapestry, this is a great example of how history artefacts can be brought alive for students (of all ages). I love clips like this. They are great to share in class and tend to inject some life into students slumped over the desk at the end of the day.
