Terrorism in 1605

Inside the White Tower at the Tower of London, was an exhibit all about Guy Fawkes and his plot in 1605 to destroy the houses of parliament, kill the King and his government and restore the Catholic church to power in England. The plot failed, but only at the last minute. Now, on November 5th each year, England remembers this early attempt at terrorism by burning effigies of Guy Fawkes on large bonfires and setting off fireworks (oh, and having a few beers of course).
