Residents of the Channel Island of Alderney have completed the concluding panels of the embroidery, which is believed to have lost its final sections.
The original 230ft-long tapestry is thought to have been commissioned by Bishop Odo of Bayeux, William’s half-brother, and was sewn in either Winchester or Canterbury in the 1070s by English needle-workers, over a period of up to 10 years.
It tracks in 50 scenes the events of the Norman conquest leading up to the Battle of Hastings, where William defeated King Harold II.
wow, that is what I call a work preserving measure!
