Henry VIII tapestry found? No

Thank you so much to Jena Gonzalez for sharing this news with me. It has been reported that a long-lost tapestry thought to have been owned by King Henry VIII has been found in a New York rug shop by historian Mary Beard.

Here are links to news articles and photos of the find:

However, Mary Beard has written her own article on the find and actually dates the tapestry to after Henry VIII’s reign – see http://timesonline.typepad.com/dons_life/2016/12/a-lost-caesar-tapestry. Thank you to Charlie Fenton for the link.
