The news that the Bayeux Tapestry is set to be loaned to Britain has got people talking about this key artefact of the Norman Conquest.

For our latest BBC History Magazine day event, we’ve brought together five experts on the tapestry and the era that created it to share the latest ideas and research about the monumental embroidery.

Speakers: Trevor Rowley, George Garnett, Alexandra Lester-Makin, Leonie Hicks, Michael Lewis
