5/11: Revisiting the Gunpowder Plot

Lily Hamourtziadou, Jonathan Jackson

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The 5th November is often seen as an opportunity for families to get together on a cold night and enjoy a firework show. What many do not often contemplate is the parallels that can be drawn between those who participate in terrorism in the 21st century and the actions of Robert Catesby and his follows in 1605. As the wooden models of Guy Fawkes go up in flames, it is important to recognise that the narrative which surrounds the motivations of these would-be martyrs needs to be re-examined.
