The word moot is an archaic term meaning "argue, debate, discuss." In early English history, a moot was a meeting to discuss local affairs. Moot comes from the Old English gemot, meaning "meeting."
Have you read The Invention of Truth: A Novel by Marta Morazzoni? It is about the Bayeux Tapestry. The story is still with me a dozen years later.
No, I have not read it. It is going on the list! Thank you.
Love the name of your blog! Having taught English, the term folk moot and images of the Bayeux Tapestry are always with me.And thanks for suggesting The King's Shadow...Harold and William of Normandy are also great interests.
