Gunpowder plot

The vault where the conspirators stored the gunpowder.

A plot against Protestant King James and his court. The cellar, beneath the House of Lords, was filled with 36 kegs of gunpowder. When the entire court was in the room above they would ignite it..

Guy Fawkes was the gunpowder expert of the group. He was caught when some gaurds mysteriously checked the underground vault at the time he was about to light the fuse.

Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot;I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive.Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old England's overthrow. But, by God's providence, him they catch, With a dark lantern, lighting a match

The conspirators

Guy Fawkes' feeble signature after his torture.

A stick and a stake For King James's sake! If you won't give me one, I'll take two, The better for me, And the worse for you. A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope, A penn'orth of cheese to choke him, A pint of beer to wash it down, And a jolly good fire to burn him. Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring! Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King! Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!-English Folk Verse c. 1870
