England and January.

So, I went to England during January.
I went for a J-Term study abroad, studying England's involvement in WWII. I took some textile picutes, so I figured this would be a good place to post some of them. These are from a hunting tapestry circa 1430's on display in the Victoria and Albert in London. I took these mostly for costuming resources (and they are just plain pretty).

I quite like the V & A, some of the prettiest textiles I have ever see, including these tapestries. The also had a textile of linen from King Tut's tumb.

A warning: I got lost in this museum. I map is quite useful when you go into any I mean any building in England. I ended up lost in the British museum, the V & A, almost in the British Library, and in the Ashmolean in Oxford.

More later, I am not very good at adding pictures to my posts yet. Ta!
