Take a virtual stroll along it.

If you've ever wished to take a walk along the Bayeux tapestry, but you are not getting to Bayeux for now, you can do so virtually - the full tapestry is on the internet.

Now usually, I'll be one of the crowd that says horizontal scrolling on webpages is evil - but in this case... it's just cool.

For anyone in southern Britain, Reading Museum have their own copy of the Bayeux Tapestry, made during the 19th century. There are a couple of differences but they're charming and add to the cultural setting, such as the planned but unstitched underwear on one soldier - either forgotten or because the embroiderer couldn't face sewing it!
