In 1661 Charles II ordered Oliver Cromwell’s corpse to be exhumed and decapitated. The head was displayed for over twenty years on the roof of Westminster Hall as a warning to republicans everywhere. Cromwell’s Head looks at history through the eyes of Britain’s first and only republican leader, telling the story of a ‘headless people’ forced to march to the top of the hill and marched back down again – Flodden, Bannockburn, Culloden, Iraq, Afghanistan, the violent end of empire, black shirts on the march again, the coronation of Charles III.
