In 1066 William the Conqueror came to England from France and took over the reigns of government at the Battle of Hastings. Rhinos have nothing to say about that, other than, We were not there.
But for Us and all the other people who were not there, there is a record of the events, namely the Bayeux Tapestry, an elaborate pictorial record which measures 270 feet, end to end. It can still be seen in France. Much of history comes and goes without a trace, but this artifact is invaluable in its detail and clarity of narration.
An astonishing accomplishment.
