Burning Guy Fawkes

Guy Fawkes (1570 -1606) conspired in the Gunpowder Plot to blow up King James the 1st and members of both Houses of Parliament.

He was arrested in the cellar, which contained 36 barrels of gunpowder, on November 4, 1605, interrogated, tortured and finally executed.

Guy Fawkes Night is still celebrated in Britain every year with bonfires, fireworks and the burning of the "Guy".
