1066: A Medieval Mosaic A Modern Bayeux Tapestry


This week I went to see the exhibition 1066: A Medieval Mosaic,a modern version of Bayeux Tapestry which appropriately is being held in Hastings, East Sussex. Although this is nowhere near as old as the original the colours have been chosen sympathetically in keeping with the original.


Michael Linton (Pictured above) along with his daughter created this wonderful masterpiece using steel. I was lucky enough to talk to Michael about his creation and even held a small piece of steel mosaic!


The total mosaic is 64 metres long and weighs 450 kg.


The last two panels which had been lost sometime ago had been lovingly researched so they were able to finish the Bayeux Tapestry as accurately as possible and show William I being crowned (Pictured Above)

The exhibition is being held at St Mary’s in the castle crypt, Hastings and is there till 28th October 2016. Check out their website here http://stmaryinthecastle.co.uk/events/#exhibitions
