Compare these three art objects — a tapestry, a frieze, and a column — and discuss their respective artistic styles.
These art objects were created to celebrate the military victories of three ancient rulers: Duke William of Normandy, Ramses II, and Emperor Trajan. In your opinion, how effective are each in illustrating the narrative?


Finally, what in your opinion is more important: that ancient art objects like these portray history accurately or are a part of a greater historical context?
