Definition

The Bayeux Tapestry shows in pictures the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England by William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, and his 1066 defeat of King Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings. It was produced between 1067 and 1079, most likely by embroiderers working in Canterbury, England, and probably for Odo, the Bishop of Bayeux.
