Battle of Hastings mosaic goes on display

A marvellous recreation of the Bayeux Tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings has gone on display at St Mary in the Castle, after being transported halfway round the world from New Zealand. The recreation, a steel mosaic, also includes historical sections missing from the famous tapestry. Nick Terdre went to view it. Photos by Tracy Hobden, Hastings Borough Council.

1066: A Medieval Mosaic

Father and daughter team, Michael and Rachael Linton, want to take 1066: A Medieval Mosaic on tour throughout the United Kingdom,  exhibiting in art galleries, museums, castles, churches, cathedrals, universities or other appropriate venues for the 950th Anniversary of the Battle of Hastings – and they’re starting with an exhibition from August to October 2016 in the Crypt of St Mary in the Castle, Hastings, writes Chris Cormack.
