Bayeux Tapestry

The Bayeux Tapestry is a commemorative embroidery that depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England in 1066 by William the Conqueror (1028-1087). The tapestry is now exhibited at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, France. The earliest known written reference is in a 1476 inventory of Bayeux Cathedral, France.
