The Cromwell Association Study Day at Huntingdon – 14th October 2023

Parliament, politics and people: the History of Parliament, House of Commons 1640-1660

The definitive history of the House of Commons from 1640-1660 will be published this year. Edited by Stephen K. Roberts, this monumental nine-volume set comprises detailed biographies of over 1800 MPs and studies of over 320 constituencies, and is the result of over twenty-five years of effort by a small team of professional historians. It is an extraordinary achievement which the Study Day will celebrate.

All of the speakers are part of the team that researched and produced the text, and will cover some interesting general themes of the period, as well as aspects specific to Cromwell.
