What we do...

17th century history is brought to life by members of the ECWS.

The main aim of The English Civil War Society is to stimulate interest in the authentic re-creation of seventeenth century military life in Britain, and in so doing we endeavor to entertain and instruct our own members and the visitors to our events. We do this by continually striving for historical authenticity in our clothing, artefacts, methods, weapons and tactics. You can find out more about us by clicking on this image.
