The English Civil War in Yorkshire.
By Gillian Waters
The English Civil Wars were one of the nastiest wars fought on our soil and York was the Northern prize. This talk explores how the wars began and the pivotal role that Yorkshire played in the ultimate success of the parliamentarians. How did families decide which side to fight on? Where did people get their arms and armour from? What was the strategic importance of York, and what happened at the Battle of Marston Moor?
