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?
The first leap year in the modern sense was in 1752 in Britain, with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. This was not the first time leap years had been used; the Julian calendar used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and The Islamic calendar Al-Hijra also has an extra day added to the 12th month Zul Hijja on leap years.
