Bayeux Tapestry

William the Conqueror's occupation of England is brought vividly to life in this 1,000-year-old, 229-foot-long tapestry—arguably the most famous of its kind in the world. Embroidered in wool yarn on woven linen, the graphic depictions of battle, royal grandeur, and everyday life offer a glimpse into 11th-century France and England, complete with plenty of blood and bawdiness. Don’t miss the accompanying short film that provides fascinating cultural context, or the indispensable audio guide that illuminates each of the tapestry’s 58 panels.
