"You've no doubt heard the name Oliver Cromwell, and you've probably visited his house. However I would argue that you've never heard the truth about 'Orrible Oliver Cromwell! 

Did he really ban christmas?!


What was Cromwell's favourite meal?

Did he actually fight in the English Civil Wars?

What did they actually do to him after he died? and....

Is he still hanging around in his former home?!"
