The Battle Of Naseby animation

 This animation, produced by Cromwell Museum volunteer Felix Copping, used an original engraving of the battle of Naseby produced in 1647 as part of a publication 'Anglia Rediviva' to illustrate key moments from the battle. A full version including explanatory subtitles can be seen in the Cromwell Museum.
