The Bayeux Tapestry – from start to finish (23min)

The Bayeux Tapestry in Normandy is an embroidered cloth nearly 70 metres long and 50 centimetres tall that tells the story of the Norman conquest of England ending with the Battle of Hastings. The tapestry is thought to date to the 11th century and to have been made in England. This video is an amusing explanation of the events depicted with occasional animation. Definitely more John Cleese than an Oxford professor’s tour!
