The Bayeux Tapestry is is one of Europe’s most renowned works of art of the 11th Century.  It is an embroidered cloth recounting William the Conqueror’s invasion of England in 1066 and is perhaps the most exciting story ever committed to linen illustrating the events surrounding the Battle of Hastings in which William, Duke of Normandy, defeated Harold Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon king of England.  The tapestry is currently in the Museum of Bayeux in Normandy, where it has been housed since 1945.
