Bayeux Tapestry replica trip (Reading)

The group thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Reading Museum. The museum provided an extremely informative and enjoyable introductory talk about the story of the original Bayeux Tapestry and the women who stitched the replica. 

None of us realised how long the tapestry was, taking up two large galleries on the first floor.

The details were quite amusing, giving us loads of ideas for our own version we are about to create on WW1

At the bottom of the border the embroiderers have signed their work, stating where they started and ended.
