S4E13 – The Mystery of Cromwell’s Head

The Mystery of Cromwell’s Head

James introduces Alasdair to the original prankster himself, Oliver Cromwell! Legendarily one of history’s great monsters, Cromwell was actually very annoying on an interpersonal level too. Let the Loremen fill you in on some of Olly Crom’s lesser-known legends – his (terrible) sense of humour, the town he definitely didn’t destroy and whatever became of his disembodied head.

Prepare yourself for an uncommonly respectful episode, with a lengthy sidebar discovering the difference between seasoning and a condiment.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
