Englishcivilwar.org is a hub for resources, comment and discussion, concentrating primarily on the conflict in England 1642-1649, though occasionally covering other items of interest from the wider Early Modern period.
Public awareness of the English Civil War and its significance is low compared to more fashionable periods (Roman, Tudors), and this is reflected in a dearth of media interest. I hope that by stimulating comment and debate amongst teachers, learners and other lovers of history the site will bring this pivotal, fascinating period to a wider audience.
The posts are there to generate discussion - please join in by leaving a comment (anonymously if you prefer)!

A word on the typeface
I've used English Roman Fell Type for the logo.
Dissatisfied with the types available at home, the Bishop of Oxford John Fell bought punches and matrices from Holland c.1670–1672 for the Oxford University Press to use.
To read more about the Fell types, see Igino Marini's detailed guide.
