Cromwell Was A Perfidious Bastard

Oxfordshire is the landscape of the English Civil War. Reminders are everywhere...



A contingent of Levellers in The New Model Army mutinied over pay and politics. Cromwell outmanouvered and cheated them, had over three hundred of them locked up in Burford church (the only building big enough to hold them) then had the supposed ringleaders shot.
