1066: A Medieval Mosaic
This site features Michael Linton's Medieval Mosaic recreation and extension of the Bayeux Tapestry and his original word puzzles and jigsaw puzzles.
Michael's Medieval Mosaic was created and is displayed in Geraldine, New Zealand. It depicts the Battle of Hastings (1066) and is supported by a complete analysis of the events, culture and history concerning the Norman Conquest. This recreation is a stunning 42 meters; painted onto a canvas of steel chips. View the Medieval Mosaic Gallery.
The other primary focus of this site is on Michael Linton's puzzles and games. All these puzzles are original concepts and are all based on mathematical concepts. We are now proud to present the Weekly Alphametic section which provides you with a new fun and challenging logic puzzle each week.
We hope that you have fun exploring the rest of the 1066 site.
