• In Northern France, 1077, Bishop Odo of Bayeux presented his King, William the Conqueror, with an embroidered tapestry that depicted the invasion of England and William’s rise to power.

• In November 2000, a screenwriter stood in front of the tapestry and was inspired to adapt events depicted in the frieze into a motion picture screenplay.

• After five years of research and writing, the collaboration between two screenwriters won festival acclaim and praise from noted filmmakers.

• Hollywood has since announced rival 1066 productions; none have yet to materialize.

• Read on to explore our as-yet unmade screenplay.
