Lecture with Dr Kathryn Gray 

In 1620 the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth harbour on a voyage across the Atlantic. This was not the first transatlantic voyage to North America, and nor was Plymouth Colony the first English colony to be settled in the New World, but the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony have had a lasting impact on the way that America makes sense of its heritage and its past. This lecture will ask why this transatlantic voyage, as opposed to others, became the cornerstone of America’s origin narrative, it will consider the unique circumstances of colonial New England, and it will take a wider view of the legacies and impacts that colonisation had on indigenous people of North America.

We are delighted you are interested in attending the Mayflower Lecture: Thursday 26 October. Arrival is from 6.00 pm in the Roland Levinsky Building and the lecture will start at 6.30 pm and finish at approximately 8pm and will be followed by a drinks reception.
