"Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot:
I see no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot..."
David Prior, head of Pubic Services and Outreach at the Parliamentary Archives, is giving an online lecture explaining the reasons behind the Gunpowder Plot, the conspirators' plans and why the plot failed. He will discuss the plot's significance and its place in the national consciousness. At the end of the talk, 15 minutes will be allocated to answering any questions.
Bookings are now open for this free online lecture which takes place on 5 November at 6pm.
The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams Live Events which can be accessed through web browsers like Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
