The English Civil War 1642-49

The Great Parliamentary Seal shows Cromwell, the Lord Protector, surrounded by members of Parliament who represent the people so their voice can be heard. Previous to this many people felt cut off from power and decision making because it was made by the Court and the King.


• What positive ideas does the seal represent? Do you think it is a suitable picture of what Cromwell wanted to achieve?

• What do you think it's important to improve in the world? Design your own seal to represent those things.
