5 November  1605

Thirteen men tried to blow up the House of Lords and kill the king, James 1 on that day. They hid 36 barrels of gunpowder in the cellar of the Parliament. The most famous of them is Guy Fawkes, who was the bomb maker.

Watch how British children remember Guy Fawkes. Then watch how to make a Guy.
