Scotland in Stitches
The first stitch is made in a project that is to cover Scotland ... well, at least its history. The threads of this story are displayed in a Stornoway Gazette article. Pytheas, the Greek geographer of the 4th Century BC, sailed around Britain and mapped as far out as Lewis. He was searching for what he considered to be the ends of the earth or Thule. The tapestry itself will stretch far and promises to be the longest in the world.
