A Trip on the Mayflower

My boys and I have been transported back in time to the 1620's over the past couple of weeks. It's been fascinating learning about our beginnings. Tonight we watched an extraordinary documentary called The Untold Story of the Mayflower.
Drawing scenes and dialogue from records of actual participants and eyewitnesses, this documentary meticulously re-creates the historic saga of the Pilgrims, from their extraordinary Mayflower crossing to their historic encounters with the Native Americans. Featuring a cast of actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the program was shot at Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts, as well as locations in England, Belgium, Maryland and Virginia.
This movie helped bring to life all that we've been reading about. It was truly an amazing journey and I have never seen a film tell the story better.
