We opened on 9th September for the 2017 Oxford Open Doors Festival. Thanks to the Oxford Preservation Trust and the Oxfordshire County council who helped to organise this exhibition. The Medieval Mosaic team, Michael, Gillian and Rachael were in attendance for the 2 days to happily talk to the 2000 guests who came to see the exhibition over the two days, explaining how the Mosaic was made, telling its story and answering questions from the public.
Robert d’Oiley, depicted as the rider in red in panel 34, was a Norman nobleman who fought alongside William the Conqueror
in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. D’Oiley built Oxford Castle in 1071 as it is recorded in the Domesday Book.
