I’ve just spent a few rather lovely days in Caen, which I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend as a place to visit – there’s plenty to see and do in Normandy, and we had lovely weather for it.
I’m just going to briefly review my visit to the Bayeux Tapestry Museum here. I fulfilled a lifelong ambition to see the Tapestry, which is said by many to be the culmination of opus Anglicanum or “English work”, Anglo-Saxon embroidery being highly prized (although, as with many other cultural artefacts, its origin may depend on which side of the Channel you are on . . . )
