Battle Tapestries

Included in the 1066 exhibition is a complete print of the Bayeux Tapestry by Charles Stothard, recreations of scenes from the Tapestry and a replica of the Alderney Tapestry which was completed in 2013.


The exhibition tells the story of England's most famous battle which was fought on the site of Battle Abbey and may even have reached the site of the Museum. Included is the Battle of Hastings Axe, possibly the only surviving relic of the Battle of Hastings.
