Henry VIII's tapestries revealed

94 ratings | 16735 views
Discover how Henry VIII's tapestries looked when he first set eyes on them over 500 years ago. This is a film of the award-winning tapestry recolouration project by conservation scientists from Historic Royal Palaces and the University of Manchester, narrated by our trustee Sir Trevor McDonald. This research resulted in a temporary animated projection that produced a virtual colour reconstruction of one of Henry VIII's tapestries.

How many poor slaves and unfortunates did Henry have suffering to create these beautiful works of art

None. Weaving was a very skilled art form, which took (men - women were not allowed to be weavers) an apprenticeship of several years to perfect.

And for £17 entrance fee [£43 for a family] You can see them too! Best not to be broke these days if you want to see anything historic.
