@tolerated so, maybe that doesn't change what he had or hadn't heard of before...

If he looks at a map even if he went there now, he still hadn't heard of it, so there is nothing wrong with his comment.. it is still true.

It's an amazing place. Lots of remnants from the 12th century, when it was a major trade center and part of the Hanseatic League.

The question "the Mayflower started its voyage to the New World here" - is Plymouth technically the correct answer? The Mayflower started on its voyage to the New World at Rotherhithe, near London. It then stopped off at Southampton (as planned I think) and set off with the Speedwell. They then had to turn back twice, stopping at Dartmouth and the Plymouth, due to leaks, in order to be repaired.

No, the divide runs along the Caucasus mountains between the Black and Caspian Seas before turning north along the Ural mountains. Sochi's on the European side of the line.

Can anyone tell me what that mayflower is supposed to be? I'm quite familiar with European history, but in this thing I cannot see the significance

Significant to Americans and turkeys. The Pilgrims/Puritans, looking for religious tolerance, left England on the Mayflower and landed at what would become Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts in 1820. They later had a feast with the Native Americans which eventually led to our American Thanksgiving, a feast of roast turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and other delectables.

Ok, so they had a feast with the natives, but later killed most of them and deported them into small reservations?
