Oliver Cromwell Warts and All

Oliver Cromwell - hero? Villain? Traitor? Whatever your view of this controversial historical figure, he certainly changed England. Cromwell came from humble beginnings - a minor land owner and farmer who rose to become king in all but name. He served as an MP for Huntingdon in the Parliament of 1628 and Cambridge in the Parliament of 1640. Cromwell was identified with those who sought to limit the powers of the King and oppose the powers of the established Church of England in favour of more freedom for Protestant groups. His exceptional organisational abilities and an understanding of warfare allowed him to rise from the rank of a cavalry captain to Lieutenant-General of the New Model Army. This tour takes you from those beginnings in Huntington, to Ely where he lived from 1636 and to Naseby, site of arguably his most famous battle and victory in 1645.

Your hosts and guides: Military historian and popular Travel Editions guide, Mike Ingram. He is accompanied by Dr Ben Robinson, archaeologist and inspector of ancient monuments for English Heritage. In 2015 he presented a BBC Four series The Flying Archaeologist and in January 2015 Last journey of the Magna Carta King on BBC2 which investigated the story of King Johns lost treasure and the last days of his life.
