"Good high resolution photographs of the iconic Bayeux Tapestry have been largely impossible to find online. The internet is lousy with meme versions of the tapestry (including custom ones created with a dedicated generator), but if you wanted to browse the real thing you were out of luck.

Well, the long, dark night is over. The Bayeux Museum has digitized the entire tapestry and made it freely available on its website. The embroidered linen illustrated retelling of the Norman conquest of Britain in 1066 is 68.38 …"

Awesome! Now I'm off to a fabric printing site and have them whip up a reproduction. That will make a great gaming room…

The viewing app is awesome!

It has English (and French) translation of the text. It zooms and scrolls nicely. You can scroll through the text, click on a "scene" and the viewer will scroll the image there. You can zoom in close enough to count the stitches. Best of all, you can turn off the French translation.

Far better than you usually see, really fun. I am really going to enjoy going through this.

One of the nice things about technology is that we're getting better and better access to a lot of museum pieces like this that it's tough to see in person. This is a big step forward.
