The early Stuart court was full of intrigue, as the hated King James I waged war on witches and Catholics alike. This was the tense background to the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, which aimed for nothing less than the destruction of both king and parliament. In a gripping talk, leading historian Tracy Borman plunges us into this murky world, (the inspiration for her debut novel The King’s Witch) revealing the extraordinary details of the Plot, and the conspirators who came within an inch of destroying a kingdom.
