2020 marks 400 years since the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, UK and on to discover the New World, now known as the United States. This anniversary is of both significant historical and cultural importance and is regarded as a key moment in the development of the modern world.

The ship has become a cultural icon in the history of the United States and more than 30 million people can trace their ancestry to the 102 passengers and approximately 30 crew aboard the Mayflower when it landed in Plymouth Bay, Massachusetts.

These individuals would go on to greatly influence the future of the United States of America.
