Broken Promises! Homeschooling the Gunpowder Plot and James VI and I

Who knew that Broken Promises have a history?! Well they do and it’s FASCINATING, and James and Sam explore the wonderful of history of saying you’re going to do ONE THING and then doing SOMETHING ELSE instead. SO ANNOYING. And they focus in particular on the promises that James VI and I made to Catholics, how he broke them…and how those broken promises led to Guy Fawkes stashing 36 barrels of gunpowder under the Houses of Parliament…the Gunpowder Plot!
