REVIEW – The Irish Civil War: law, execution, and atrocity

Worcester battlefield located by archaeologists

It was the last battle of the British Civil Wars – a final clash between 28,000 men of Cromwell’s New Model Army and 16,000 Royalists, most of them Scots, under Charles Stuart, son of the executed king. Only now, however, has the actual battle site been confirmed by archaeological discoveries.
