For the north of Britain there is little information about what happened between the fall of Roman government and the rise of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms.

"Remember Remember the 5th November, gunpowder treason and plot" but what do we really know about the events of 1605 that created our modern bonfire night celebrations? 

Could the plot have succeeded? The talk examines a modern day re-construction  of the planned explosion and what the result would have been. This should be a very interesting talk.
