And the campus has loaded the brief visit with pertinent and pithy lectures.The tapestry – buy-oh is one pronunciation – tells the story of events leading up to the Battle of Hastings in 1066 with pictures and snippets of Latin text.Translated, a key phrase says, “He is slain.” King Harold is depicted reaching to touch the shaft of an arrow in an ey...
