ALDERNEY’S Bayeux Tapestry was being displayed to students at Cambridge University last week.

Alderney Tapestry co-creator Kate Russell.

The tapestry was taken over at the invitation of the Cambridge Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Society.

The people behind the tapestry, Kate Russell and artist Pauline Black, went with it and gave a talk to more than 50 students and academics about the embroidered cloth.

During her one-and-a-half-hour presentation, Ms Russell provided a unique insight into possible interpretations of the different scenes, symbols, myths and messages hidden in the tapestry and Alderney’s Final Chapter.
