Bayeux celebrates founding of Normandy

This will be a big year for the town of Bayeux in Normandy, France, when it celebrates the 1100th birthday of the French province of Normandy. The town's 25th annual Medieval Fair will take place July 1-3, 2011, and will celebrate all things Norman.

One of the highlights of the festival will be a re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings, which will take place the morning of July 3.
