How can images be used to structure historical narratives?
Historical narratives are found in art across cultures. They appear in a variety of media and employ diverse methods to establish chronology or the relationship between multiple events. Some images, for instance, use continuous narrative, in which a series of moments occur within a single frame. In other cases, cycles or series of images appear within separate frames, but work together to tell a full story. Both the Bayeux Tapestry and the Column of Trajan fall somewhere in between these two modes.
