The tapestry consists of some fifty scenes with Latin tituli, embroidered on linen with coloured woollen yarns. It is likely that it was commissioned by Bishop Odo, William’s half-brother, and made in England—not Bayeux—in the 1070s. In 1729 the hanging was rediscovered by scholars at a time when it was being displayed annually in Bayeux Cathedral. The tapestry is now exhibited at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in Bayeux, Normandy, France.

The Bayeux Tapestry gives information of a historical nature that no other source has provided. It begins with the description of Harold’s eventful journey to Normandy (landing in Ponthieu, meeting with the Duke William, expedition in Brittany and oath on the sacred relics of Bayeux). It then depicts Harold’s return to England and his coronation after the death of King Edward the Confessor. Finally it describes the preparation for William’s expedition, the crossing of the Channel, and the Battle of Hastings.
