New World Tapestry

The New World tapestry is a commemorative embroidery illustrating England’s colonisation attempts in North America, Bermuda, Guyana and Newfoundland between 1583 and the year 1642, when the English Civil War broke out. The embroidery was designed by Tom Mor, who also designed the Plymouth tapestry and the Bristol Berkeley Plantation tapestry.
