What did happen to Oliver Cromwell’s body?

Tue, 01/21/2014

This January, Oliver Cromwell House will be the place to learn about what really happened to the former Lord Protector’s beheaded corpse.

‘Cromwell’s Talking Head’ on Thursday 30 January at 2pm, visitors to the tourist venue will be taken on a guided tour of the House followed by a dramatic monologue from Norfolk author Gareth Calway.

Gareth will explain how the body was buried in the manner of a king only to be exhumed after the Restoration to be hung, drawn and quartered with the head put on the traitor’s pole over Westminster Hall for 25 years.
