Mayflower LIVE with Dr Elaine Murphy

The second in our Mayflower LIVE series will look in more depth into the journey of the people who travelled, the perilous challenges they overcame, how they built a colony in America and the eventual devastating impact it had on people who already lived there.

This is a great chance to ask our experts questions in real time while watching on the Mayflower 400 UK Facebook page.

The next live Q&A explores what it might have been like on board the ship, how the crew managed to navigate 66 days on the Atlantic and how the 102 men, women and children managed to survive the crossing.

While there is little in the history books that tells of exactly what conditions were like on the Mayflower, we can draw some conclusions from what maritime life was like in the early 17th century.

We’ll be joined by expert Dr Elaine Murphy, an Associate Professor of Maritime and Naval History at the University of Plymouth - the very port at which the Mayflower last stopped before voyaging to America.

Join us on Sunday, 28 March at 5pm UK time on our Facebook page for our live event. No registration is necessary.
