This is one of two tapestry designs based on scenes from the most famous tapestry of them all; the Bayeux Tapestry. This design shows William the Conqueror and his knights on horseback in battle at Hastings. The companion kit, 'Invasion - The Crossing', shows William's invasion fleet crossing the channel packed with Norman knights and their war gear.
'They reach the south coast of England on the 28th September and land at Pevensey. Soldiers ride off towards Hastings. On the morning of the battle, 14th October 1066, William, in full armour, is about to mount his horse. William’s Norman cavalry gallops off to face Harold’s English soldiers.'
