An English Colonist

She was very talkative. Part of what makes the tour so fascinating is that the colonists are role playing. You can't call them pilgrims because they didn't call themselves pilgrims - we call them pilgrims. This lady thinks that I'm looking for a place to live and she said that's what brought her here. You can't mention anything 21st century because they'll have no idea what you're talking about. The actors are very well versed in Plymouth area history. Seems like a neat job to have, if nothing else, to wear the outfit! But really the history is spellbinding when you listen to these role players. They all very, very good actors.
