Welcome to the website for our project about the Mayflower and Britain!

Here you can find out how the Mayflower’s voyage has been commemorated across Britain through the centuries.

We are exploring every aspect of how this famous voyage, and the ‘Pilgrims’ it transported, has impacted British culture over the last four hundred years. We are interested in the mediums through which British people have engaged with the story, from art and literature to music and film, and how the tale of religious freedom has impacted on the narratives and politics of what it means to be English or British. You can find out more about all these examples of commemoration by browsing our Mayflower Map, and by reading our Mayflower Stories.

We’d also love to hear from anyone else who has material or memories of ‘Mayflower culture’ of their own – like photographs of monuments and memorials, novels and songs, and memories or souvenirs of previous commemorations. What does the Mayflower story mean to you?

You can also use our website to learn more about the aims and members of our project, the partners we are working with, any events we are going to be involved with in the future. You can also follow us on Twitter!
