You might have heard of Guy Fawkes and the famous plot to blow up parliament in 1605, but he didn’t work alone…
I was friends with Guy Fawkes at school and, together, we tried to overthrow King James I. Needless to say, we weren’t successful, but the Gunpowder Plot made history. Guy Fawkes became one of the most infamous names to come from York, whereas I am hardly known in comparison. If you want to discover my identity, and about my links with the Bar Convent, you’ll have to follow my trail.
Look out for my letters hidden through the exhibition, they’ll give you a clue. If you can do it, there’s a prize in it for you.
