A New Ending For The Bayeux Tapestry

The famous Bayeux Tapestry is 70m long and woven to tell the tale of the final days of King Harold's final encounter with William the Conqueror in battle.

But until now that tale did not include the coronation of William, which happened on Christmas Day 1066. A year ago stitchers in the tiny island of Alderney set about making their own version of the missing Bayeux Tapestry ending and have now completed it.

I visited the beautiful town of Bayeux in May and saw the tapestry. Too bad I didn't get to see the new section.
