Mayflower

The Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower are usually thought of as Puritan worthies. In fact, they mostly belonged to an obscure and unremembered sect called the Brownists. The real story of the sailing of this group of eccentrics and indentured servants is told in LONDON: 'God's Fire'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
