With Harold dead, the battle is over. The victorious Normans chase the remaining English from the battlefield. The final scene from the tapestry has been lost. It may have shown William being crowned King of England. This would match the scene at the very beginning of the tapestry, which shows King Edward secure on the throne just two years earlier.
Although the battle is over, the war won by William, there is still lots more that you can learn about the Bayeux Tapestry and its fantastic story on the Reading Museum website.
