This talk looks at Cromwell as a person, his family and explodes some of the myths about him, focusing a little less on the traditional approach of his career as a soldier and politician allowing us to uncover some of the controversies about his life and see him as a person ‘Warts and all’. The fee for this course is £3.50 or if you book for Henry VIII's Grandma at the same time the total fee is £6.00.
