Location: Huntingdon Town Hall

For the final lecture of the 2019 Cromwell Lecture Series, the Cromwell Museum is delighted to welcome the Director of the Churchill Archive and former Cromwell Museum Trustee Allen Packwood.

Churchill wrote about Cromwell; he named military operations and even a tank after him. There two men served as soldiers, politicians and courted controversy. This talk will look at the parallels between them and examine what the Prime Minister thought about the Lord Protector.

Allen Packwood OBE is a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, and the Director of the Churchill Archives Centre. He is a qualified archivist and has worked at the Centre since September 1995, before being appointed Director in 2002. He has curated several exhibitions on Churchill, organised many events and lectures, has lectured extensively and is the author of several articles and a new book: 'How Churchill Waged War: The Most Challenging Decisions of the Second World War'. He was one of the founding trustees of the Cromwell Museum Trust.

This is part of a four part lecture series on the Civil War period. Discounted combined tickets for all four talks can be purchased at: the Cromwell Lecture Series (click on this title for the link).

The other talks are by John Rees on 'The Levellers', Professor John Morrill on 'Cromwell and Ireland' and Dr Ismini Pells on 'Wounded, Widows and Orphans: Civil War Petitions',
