Bayeux also boasts an excellent D-Day museum, the principal British military cemetery in Normandy, and the famous Bayeux tapestry. This is a pictorial narrative of another invasion, that of William, Duke of Normandy, who sailed his army across the Channel in 1066 and defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings. The tapestry depicts the proceedings like a primitive cartoon strip 20 inches high, and it sounds a little ho-hum until you learn that it’s 230 feet long. It is also astonishingly well preserved, and it is hard to believe that it’s more than 900 years old, but hey—welcome to Europe.
