Abstract

Over the past twenty years there has been a surge of interest in the way that the English Civil Wars of the mid-seventeenth century – perhaps the most calamitous series of conflicts in the country’s recorded history – were remembered by the men, women and children who were unfortunate enough to live through them. The essays brought together in this book – which is the first edited collection to be devoted specifically to the memory of the Civil Wars - not only provide a clear and accessible introduction to this fast-developing field of study but also bring together the voices of a diverse group of scholars who are working at its cutting edge. Through the investigation of a broad, but closely interrelated, range of topics – including elite, popular, urban and local memories of the wars, as well as the relationships between civil war memory and ceremony, material culture and concepts of space and place – the essays contained in this volume demonstrate, with exceptional vividness and clarity, how the people of England and Wales continued to be haunted by the ghosts of the mid-century conflict throughout the decades which followed.
