Welcome to the Gunpowder Plot Society Archives. The categorized list of documents below provides the most comprehensive collection of plot related primary and secondary source material currently available online. Included amongst this collection are Confessions, Letters and Correspondence, Public Record Office documents, and miscellaneous items that provide additional information on the event, or the lives of those involved.

A great many of the hundreds of documents available have been transcribed/translated by the GPS themselves and in time more will be added. The GPS is always willing to appraise and determine the authenticity of any document or source material that is connected to the plot or the conspirators.
