Time & Location
About the Event
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TALK TAKES PLACE AT THE HENRY SANDON HALL.
Oliver Cromwell, the only commoner ever to become supreme head of a British state, has always produced deep divisions of opinion, between those who view him as one of the greatest of Britons, to those who see him as a usurper, tyrant and fanatic. This lecture is designed to show why Cromwell is such a complex figure and to provide its own assessment of his character.
Professor Hutton is a leading authority on history of the British Isles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, on ancient and medieval paganism and magic, and on the global context of witchcraft beliefs. Also the leading historian of the ritual year in Britain and of modern paganism. He is a member of the 'Medieval and Early Modern Cluster' at Bristol. He is also a Patron of the Battle of Worcester Society.
