Hands on History: Roundheads and Cavaliers

Wed 25 July – Friday 31 August
Goodrich Castle, Castle Lane, Goodrich, Ross on Wye, HR9 6HY

The English Civil War was an extraordinary period of history. It was the first time that ordinary people in vast numbers talked about their rights and questioned why the land was owned by the elite.

Four centuries ago, when England descended into Civil War, everyone had to pick a side. On one side stood the Roundheads, led by Oliver Cromwell, who believed parliament should be able to limit the power of the King and introduce rules. They fought against Charles I of England and his supporters, the Cavaliers who supported rule by absolute monarchy and the divine rights of the king.
