Bayeux Collection

The Bayeux Tapestry is a unique historical record depicting the events surrounding the Norman Conquest of England, which culminated in the Battle of Hastings in 1066 between the armies of Harold, King of England and William, Duke of Normandy. The original tapestry measures approximately 68 metres (224 feet) long, and now hangs at the Museum of Bayeux in northern France.
