The history of the Gunpowder Plot is a far more detailed and intricate web of intrigue than
what we read in traditional history books. The personal relationships and possible conspiracies
that existed at this time offer up dozens of potential storylines and avenues of research, many
of which the Gunpowder Plot Society is heavily involved in investigating.
Included in this section are links to some of our own research threads, as well as small pieces
on some of the on-going projects we as a Society are involved in. Many threads are nothing more than
a series of rough connections, some are questions with possible answers, and some are more rounded
pieces, all of which add more detail to 5th November 1605. Please feel free to comment in the
Forum and if you want your own research link included here,
