ATTEND RESEARCH TRIPS
Help us gather research about the history of the Mayflower
Can you help us gather information about the life and times of those on board the Mayflower ship? This might be through archival research, site visits or web-based research.
Have you, or someone you know, undertaken a significant journey in your life? Can you help us gather testimonies and research about present day migration?
Why do you think the Mayflower story has become so significant? Can you help us broaden out our understanding of the story?
In 2018 we went on trips to the Migration Museum to see the exhibition ‘No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain’, to Southwark Cathedral to learn about its early American connections and visit the memorial to Native American Mahomet Weyonomon, and to the notorious Clink prison to find out how some religious dissenters at the time were treated.
In December we visited the National Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark to find out more about life at sea and the technological advances in seafaring in the seventeenth century.
This year we have watched 27 Degrees Theatre Company’s show Touching Home exploring everyday stories of London’s migrants, and will be watching performances as part of the Origins Festival, which celebrates the world’s First Nations.
Join us for more research trips and events this summer.
