Remember 400 years of Guy Fawkes with a selection of exciting cross-curricular activities
Four hundred years ago, Catholic people were very angry, as the protestant King James forbade them to worship in their own churches. A plot to get rid of the King by destroying the Houses of Parliament was led by Robert Catesby and friends. They commissioned Guy Fawkes, a mercenary and explosives expert, to help. On 5 November 1605, while hiding in the cellar of a house waiting to light the fuse, Fawkes was arrested. Later, he and the plotters were all hanged.
