The English Civil War in Hampshire

Thursday 2nd July 2020

The Civil War affected every part of the British Isles, and Hampshire became a front-line in the struggle between Parliament and King Charles.  This talk will give an overview of military operations in the county from the outbreak of hostilities at Portsmouth - two weeks before the official declaration of war in August 1642 - to the escape of Charles II in 1651.  The talk will be illustrated both by slides and original artefacts.

Alan is a military historian, who specialises in the English Civil War. From 1987-2011 he was the curator of Hampshire’s Basing House, which underwent the longest siege of the English Civil War. Alan has written a number of books on the Civil War, particularly on the parliamentarian army and is a founder member of the Battlefields Trust.
