BAS Saturday Lecture

Saturday June 11th 2:30pm: John Hampden and the Battle of Chalgrove

Speaker: Derek Lester

chalgroveDerek Lester will show how our knowledge of the Battle of Chalgrove and of John Hampden’s death and funeral depends on Clarendon’s ‘History of the Great Rebellion’ and Lord Nugent’s ‘Memorials of John Hampden.’ Derek argues that these accounts, written many years after the events, have misled students of the English Civil War.  Derek will show how Clarendon’s original diaries, preserved in the Bodleian Library, give a very different version of these critical events.
