The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidered cloth (230 feet long and 20 inches in height), which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England (1066) and culminates in the Battle of Hastings. The tapestry consists of some fifty scenes with Latin titles embroidered on linen with colored woolen yarns.
The Bayeux tapestry is one of the supreme achievements of the Norman Romanesque Period. Its survival almost intact over nine centuries is little short of miraculous.
FYI: Because of its historic value and delicate condition you are not permitted to photograph the tapestry. I copied this from a computer source.
