Your journey into the tapestry begins
Few images from English history can be as evocative as the iconic scene from the Bayeux Tapestry showing Harold being struck in his eye by a Norman arrow. That moment is wonderfully depicted on your medal, along with a stunningly engraved artists’ impression of Harold’s agony as he clutches his eye, his sword and shield tumbling to the ground. Yet, that moment came at the end of an extraordinary life during which Harold had proved himself to be a staunch Englishman, a loyal subject and one of the bravest and most skilled warrior kings the country has ever known.

 

Your medal is layered with a full-colour depiction of the famous scene in the Bayeux Tapestry, bought to life in stunning relief.
