Let's continue the story from's time for the Battle of Hastings and to meet William the Conqueror....

An incredible record of this time remains is called the Bayeux Tapestry.

The Bayeux Tapestry is a fabric picture with stitching on....stitching of pictures and words that was ordered to be made (commissioned) by William to celebrate his victory at the Battle of Hastings and the taking of the English crown. It has survived 1000 years and can be seen in a museum in Normandy in France....

A very clever person has brought the tapestry to life to tell the story of The Battle of Hastings...
