This option module provides a broad coverage of the complex, exciting and lastingly influential events which dominated the history of the British Isles in the central decades of the 17th century. The approach adopted is that followed by the most recent accounts of the subject, which in recent years have laid much emphasis on placing the English Civil War, or the 'English Revolution', in its wider 'British' context. The module will explore therefore the relationships not only between Westminster and the English or Welsh county communities, but also between religious and political communities in Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England during the 17th century as a whole.
