The Roman Palace at Fishbourne, Sussex, England has some intriguing black and white mosaics. I wanted to reproduce some of the patterns (see Fishbourne examples, which also give photos of the mosaics), so I made up a special version of the mosaic page to do it. Scroll down for instructions. You can make parts of the patterns with the standard make a mosaic page, but this lets you get more of the patterns.
