Addendum: Michael Sorgatz tells me they've just rehung the Rembrandt gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and that it's "fantastic."

Blogger tells me this is my 1,066th post on this blog, so what could be more appropriate, I thought, than to feature a live video of the last successful hostile military invasion of Old Blighty, which happened in the year 1066 and culminated in the Battle of Hastings. The authentic re-enactment shown in the video above was done by Twice a Fortnight, a group formed in 1967 that included future Monty Python cast members Terry Jones and Michael Palin, along with Tony Buffery, Graeme Garden, Jonathan Lynn, and Bill Oddie.
