Ten interesting facts about the English Civil War

The English Civil War is a fascinating period of history, but few people know much about it. I recently came across Anglotopia’s post Ten Interesting Facts About the English Civil War. which is well worth a look.

I wonder if you have any facts you would like to add to the list? Please do so in the comment box below as I would love to read them.  Perhaps they would be similar to the facts I have come across in the research for my new novel, Rebekah. One thing I have found interesting is the high incidence of witchraft trials during the war. This is something which will impact on my main characters – but more of that in a later post!
