  3. It's news to me that there is a copy of the Bayeux Tapestry. Saw the original for the first time about a year ago. So impressive that a textile this elaborate has lasted so long. Thanks for showing another interesting sight in Reading. And thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  7. The family of «Louis'» mother originated in Normandie near Bayeux. We have the family traced back to about 950. One of «Louis'» Norman ancestors sailed down the Seine with William and fought at Hastings.
