The Gunpowder Plot

As I write this post in front of my study window, I am being treated to a free firework display…as I was last night. This is because tomorrow, November 5th, is when we celebrate the discovery of a plot to blow up the King and the Houses of Parliament. All kinds of traditions and customs have grown up around this event and to help you understand why this is celebrated, I’ve found a few interesting links to help you discover why events in 1605 are still remembered today.
