Bayeux Tapestry professionally made, claims expert

New research debunks the theory that the Bayeux Tapestry was woven by nuns across England, and shows that the cherished artifact was not a tapestry at all but an embroidery created by a team of professionals under one manager.

Professional embroiderer Alexandra Makin of the University of Manchester studied the piece and reported that it was probably stitched by one group of people using basic materials. "It's clear from my analysis of the Bayeux Tapestry that the style of work is consistent throughout," she said.
