Event Details

The Bayeux Tapestry famously tells the story of the conquest of England in 1066 – that much most people know, but there’s a lot more to this most celebrated of embroideries than that. What’s particularly interesting is to consider what’s not shown in the tapestry, and what that tells us about the motives of the design minds behind it. Join historian and content director of BBC History Magazine, David Musgrove, to explore the Tapestry’s brilliantly depicted but still enigmatic story of what happened in the fateful year of 1066. Full of fresh insights and unexpected discoveries he shares convincing explanations for many of the riddles left to us by the makers.

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
