Tapestry Description

Bayeux Tapestry Banquet

The Bayeux Tapestry Banquet scene shows Duke William of Normandy and his lords enjoying a banquet before the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It is from the famous embroidery (not a tapestry) that shows the history of the Norman invasion of Saxon England in 50 scenes from the death of King Edward the Confessor through William the Conqueror’s invasion to the decisive Battle of Hastings. Today it is displayed at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in Bayeux, Normandy.

This medieval tapestry is woven in Belgium today in a 72% cotton, 19% trevira and 9% wool weave which gives full and depth with good detailing. The Bayeux Tapestry Banquet scene is fully lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. A shorter tapestry of the scene is also available.
