The 400th anniversary of the Mayflower sailing is here, and is a special moment of Lincolnshire's history.
The anniversary, on September 16, will be marked by a number of events - starting with a special documentary.
Gainsborough has a special connection to the Mayflower anniversary through the Separatist movements that originated in this region, some of whom later led the journey to America.
Presented by well-known TV historian Dan Snow, the documentary will reflect the story of the Pilgrims; roots and their journeys, the impact on the Native American people who helped them when they first arrived and the wider colonial context of the Mayflower’s voyage.
