Campaign to bring the Bayeux Tapestry back to Britain





A campaign has been launched to bring the Bayeux Tapestry, one of the world’s great works of art, back to Britain for the first time centuries, and put it on display in Canterbury Cathedral.

The famous embroidery of the 1066 Norman Conquest is the subject of a major conference of world experts being held at the British Museum next month.

Feted as the most famous cartoon strip of history, the tapestry was made in Britain but never displayed here and now historians believe we should take advantage of French president Nicolas Sarkosy’s friendship with Britain and ask for the chance to bring it home.
