After King Charles had been killed Oliver Cromwell ruled England. He gave himself the title of Lord Protector.

The way people lived was to be very different, and many things changed. Cromwell wanted everyone to live like Puritans. Here are some of the things he did.

Cromwell closed down all pubs and theatres. He stopped all sports being played even football. But perhaps the worst thing he did was stop people celebrating Christmas, he even sent soldiers to peoples houses to take away any presents or Christmas food.

Life in Puritan England became very boring.
