The Bayeux Tapestry is a 70m (230 foot) long by 0.5m (20 inches) wide strip of linen that contains a series of embroidered pictures illustrating the Norman invasion of England. The tapestry includes pictures of 626 people, 190 horses, 37 ships and 33 buildings. It is believed that Bishop Odo, William the Conqueror's half-brother, organised the making of the tapestry. The embroidery was probably produced by a group of women from Canterbury in Kent in about 1090. After the tapestry was finished, it was taken to Bishop Odo's cathedral in Bayeux, France.
