On Thursday, the English Civil War reenactors returned to Abingdon, demonstrating Civil War military drills, equipment, gunpowder mixing, uniforms and more to our 2nd Year History pupils. As ever, it was a fantastic morning and a superb way for the pupils to be fully immersed in the history of the Civil War. The activities fit neatly into our 2nd Year enquiry question for the year: ‘Who made Britain: rulers, religion or rebels c.1215-1918?’ Mark, one of our pupils, said that ‘although we weren’t being fired upon by the Roundheads or Cavaliers, it was fantastic to see everything close up’.
