  In this lively presentation exploring the events of 1621, author Diane Z. Shore, dressed in period costume and in Olde English language, tells about 17th Century America.  Through the eyes of Ellinor Billington, a colorful and rather opinionated colonist, who along with her troublesome husband and two mischievous sons traveled to the New World aboard the Mayflower, Diane shares stories of the Mayflower voyage, that first year of hardship in the New World, and everyday life in Plimoth. 
Includes a hands-on interactive demonstration of the 17th century European and Native American children’s toys and games.   Come and play Hoop and Stick, Ninepins, Whip Top and more, and learn how to write your name with a real quill pen!  It’s an entertaining and educational time travel that brings history to life.  Read more about Ellinor Billington, 17th Century Pilgrim
