Event Details

Plimoth Plantation is delighted to present: Becoming the Pilgrims; Adventures in Colonial Role-Playing led by Colonial Interpretation Director, Dr. John Kemp. Dr. Kemp has been a fixture in Plimoth Plantation’s English Village for over 20 years and has portrayed everyone from John Billington to William Brewster. (He even served as the colonial representation in our Museum logo). Located in the Visitor Center's Patuxet Room on the grounds of Plimoth Plantation, this lecture will begin promptly at noon.

A brief Q&A will follow. Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.

About Our Speaker: Before joining the staff of Plimoth Plantation in 1983, Dr. Kemp attended Harvard as an English Major. His passions include 19th-Century American and English Literature, Robert Frost and public history. In 1975, he received his Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania, and since then has lectured at Tufts University, Massasoit Community College, and Kanazawa University in Kanazawa, Japan.
