The Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon, run by Cambridgeshire County Council, will be hosting the event in conjunction with the Cromwell Association. Itâ€™s also supported by the Huntingdon Freemenâ€™s Trust. The day itself will be held in Huntingdon Library - a short walk from the museum.
The day will include a series of talks from leading experts on subjects as diverse as the importance of archaeology in understanding civil war battles, and what happened when Cromwellâ€™s army was disbanded.
John Goldsmith, Cambridgeshire County Councilâ€™s Curator of the Cromwell Museum said â€œOliver Cromwell rose to fame and power as a consequence of his abilities as a military commander. This fascinating programme will really give us a chance to explore aspects of his army in detail, and weâ€™d encourage those interested to book early to avoid disappointment.â€
The event is open to all and places must be booked in advance by 12 October. The cost of the day, including buffet lunch to be served in Huntingdonâ€™s Town Hall, is Â£45 with reductions for full-time students.
