    Plymouth colony, also called New Plymouth, was a 16th century English Colony located at the fringe of Massachusetts Bay. Often known as the first settlement of Europeans on English terrain the formation of this colony (starting from 1620) has a story of its own. The story starts when a bunch of English Separatist Church congregants caught up to Plymouth Rock after months of sailing. With the help of neighbouring tribes these people were able to successfully establish an economy of their own.But more than its economic significance the reason why a settlement this old continues to interest historians is its strong religious influence on European, English and American folklore revolving around John Robinson, the pioneer of English separatists.

    The Roman statesman Sulla had the nickname “Felix” - meaning “lucky.” Yet his accomplishments were more a matter of brute force than good fortune. He put an end to a civil war, declared himself dictator, and used his power to bring Rome back to its former value system, purging thousands of Roman enemies along the way. Plutarch’s biography of Sulla shows how one man’s use of force to obtain political power influenced many who came after him, most notably Julius Caesar.
