Ever since it came to the world's attention in the 17th century, the world's most famous tapestry has been a source of never-ending speculation. And yet, though so much studied, it keeps some secrets. Here we highlight the background of its construction and the vents of 1066 that it portrays. There is much to uncover in the detail: warfare and weaponry, armour and costumes, depictions of everyday life, houses, farming, architecture, personalities - and mystery figures.
