ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

Tours & Talks – Medieval Mosaic by Michael A. Linton

1066 – A Medieval Mosaic art exhibition is currently on display at the Oxford County Hall until 8th Dec 2017. While it is on display we are offering guided tours and talks by the artist Michael Linton. We would like to invite you to reserve a guided tour event for your group (up to 30 people) to see the artwork.

Made out of three million pieces of spring steel, the Medieval Mosaic is 64 meters long, and took Michael Linton 33 years to make. It has a Guinness World Record for the longest steel mosaic. Come and learn the full story of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, and how it changed our history.

Depicted in this three part artistic odyssey the artist will detail:
1. Bayeux Tapestry
2. Battles of Fulford and Stamford Bridge
3. Finale section with William the Conqueror Crowned King

Michael Linton will also share the content of his comprehensive informational database USB/PORTAL where he has compiled an encyclopedic account of 11th century medieval life as depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry; including the people, the culture and events of the time. Michael also explains how he has encoded an intricate path of puzzles into the background pieces of the mosaic, come and discover the hidden history of the Medieval Mosaic.
