The tapestry is, in fact, an embroidery completed in the 1070s. The detail of the stitching is so intricate. There are 58 embroidery panels in total and they’re joined together to tell a story. They show the events that led to the Norman conquest of England. The final panels depict the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where Harold who was the King of England, was shot in the eye with an arrow.
