Bayeux Navigo Belgiam tapestry is a piece of history, this detail from the Bayeux tapestry, shows one of the ships sailing for England to the Battle of Hastings. Though it took a single day, this event in 1066 shaped England's history for years to come. Duke William became the first Normal king of England and Norman culture influenced England during that time period and beyond. Here in this tapestry we see the crew on the boats navigating the seas, with a decorative border of mythological and real animals. The sail across the sea to England took place in warmer months as William had to wait until winter was over to avoid the storms.
