The Animated Bayeux Tapestry

The first English comic strip becomes, well, the first cartoon representation of the first English comic strip I could find on Youtube.

Sure, it's oversimplified and only uses the second half of the work, but it's a good summary. Plus it has music, moves, and does away with that pesky Latin.

Watch it once for a lesson on Medieval history. Watch it twice for the Warcraft II remix.

It amazes me that one of the most important events in English history hasn't gotten the Big Bad Jerry Bruckheimer Historical Epic Movie treatment yet. Not that that's a bad thing.
