Talk: The Siege of Nettlestead, 1646: A Family Scandal During the English Revolution 1850 to the Present

Professor Jason Peacey’s research focuses on the politics and political culture of early modern Britain, and he is particularly interested in the relationships between print culture and political life, and between the citizen and the state.

Jason, one of the editors of a Leverhulme Trust project to produce a new edition of the letters and speeches of Oliver Cromwell, is currently writing a microhistory on politics and religion in a protracted 17th-century land dispute, provisionally entitled The Churchrobber and the Madman.
