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?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
