abstract
On November 5, 1605 Guy Fawkes was discovered in a cellar underneath Parliament, ready to blow the pile of gunpowder kegs and logs. He was propelled into the public consciousness, and is today the only one remembered. The Gunpowder had a total of thirteen conspirators, in which Guy Fawkes was just the munitions expert. There was also the whistleblower, the head of state, and the intended victims, most notably King James I, all of whom have fallen to the sidelines. This paper looks at the plot in its entirety, including the religious divisions that started in the reign of Henry VIII and following through to the trial of the Plotters who lived to be tried. The point of this study was to gain a better understanding of the Gunpowder Plot and to remember the rest of the participants as well as Guy Fawkes.
