The Bayeux Tapestry and the Norman Conquest | Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

In 1066 duke William of Normandy commenced the conquest of England at Hastings. Almost before the conquest had been completed some years later, the story of the two protagonists, William and Harold, had been told in a remarkable source, commissioned for the cathedral in Bayeux but produced in England. We will look at the Conquest through the lens of the Bayeux Tapestry.
