Product Description
 
In a museum in a small town of Bayeux in Normandy, specially devised to hold this single object, is a strip of linen nearly a thousand years old. It is 230 feet long - and about 20 inches high. On it, embroidered in brightly coloured wool, are figures of men, animals, buildings and ships. In a series of vivid scenes, with a running explanatory text in Latin, it relates the invasion of England by William of Normandy and his victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
