About RADICAL! POLITICAL! HISTORICAL!

To celebrate the opening of the civil war museum, this blog will explore the social and political world of the British Isles and compare today’s events to those back in early modern times (1500-1700).

This blog seeks to stimulate interest towards a time when it was not just the British constitutional liberties that were being challenged, but also how the rules of civil conflict were constantly changing. In the wake of the 2015 United Kingdom General Election, many of those residing in the UK currently believe that the British national identity is now in flux. This blog aims to show some comparisons to an era where British nationalism was transforming to something much more extreme.

I don’t intend to draw massive conclusions, only to commentate, spectate and ask an important question what makes us radical?

My name is Reece Samuels. I am an English history graduate and also an aspiring teacher and blogger seeking to question the social, political economical traditions that bind the United Kingdom.
