When James I of Scotland came to the throne after Elizabeth’s death in 1603, the nation heaved a sigh of relief: the succession was secure. Less than fifty years later, James’s son Charles I was defeated in the civil war and went to the scaffold, paving the way for Cromwell’s military dictatorship. We shall examine the political, religious and social changes in England, Scotland and Ireland, which brought about possibly the greatest upheaval in British history.

Tutor – John Stevens
A lawyer by profession until my retirement in 2013, I have a lifelong interest in history and an enthusiasm to communicate and share this interest by both the spoken and written word.
My interests are wide and include in particular the Stuart era in Britain and nineteenth century English and European political history.
I have also published work, and lectured on, aspects of Bristol history in the period 1800-1850.
