The Bayeux Tapestry

The Bayeux Tapestry was a long embroidered cloth that depicted the events leading up to, and the battle itself of the Norman Conquest, which made William the Conqueror King of England. This video (posted on youtube) below was shared with my RWA chapter Celtic Hearts, by a woman who is always a valuable resource for historical lovers! I thought I'd pass the video on to you.

Thank you for sharing this. Where is the tapestry now located? I guess I could google it to find out : )
