History - Conflict and Revolution: The Stuart Age 1603-1702
We will study themes of population, agriculture, social and domestic life and women’s roles in this period which includes Civil War (1642-1651) and Interregnum (1649-1660) when England was in military power under Oliver Cromwell. After the 1688 Glorious Revolution came a time of restoration and rebuilding including Christopher Wren’s St Pauls Cathedral. This interesting, exciting period witnessed the foundation of the Bank of England (1694), and the growth of London, trade and science.
