:)Thankyou to all, I knew I could count on you guys.
I'd guessed at middle english myself also the artwork didn't feel right to me.
Next question is does anyone know of an ecclesiastic quote refering to ploughing. Does anyone know of one in old english or would anyone like to try a translation of one. There's a long way to go yet but when my Dad finishes the tapestry I'll post pictures.
Thanks again. Wolf.
