The Bonny Prince and His Tapestry

Since we've been watching Kathy's study of the Bayeux Tapestry and her stitching of one section, I thought you would like to see an amazing modern piece that tells part of the story of Bonny Prince Charlie's 1745 campaign.  This huge tapestry is known as the Prestonpans Tapestry.

If you are not a Scot, you may never have heard the romantic tale of Prince Charles Edward Stuart and his quest to conquer England.  It's a tale worthy of several tapestries!
