Oliver Cromwell

I thought I would write about Oliver Cromwell because I didn't know who he was which meant there were other people who didn't know either. His name pops up a lot especially in the local area and here is why he is important in the history of England.

Oliver Cromwell lived in Ely in the house that is the tourist information centre. He was born in Huntingdon and attended Cambridge University.

He is famous for executing Charles I during the Civil War and making England the republic you see today.

His body is buried in Westminster Abbey and his head is buried in a secret location in Sidney Sussex college in Cambridge.

All the Best!
