In this episode of History Gems, Nicola is joined by Stuart Orme, the curator of the Cromwell Museum, in Huntingdon, to discuss the life of Elizabeth Cromwell, wife of the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell - and of course, her jewels.

They also explore a very unusual recipe book with an even more unusual essay inside which, according to Stuart is akin to "a cookery book by Michelle Obama containing an essay by Donald Trump criticising Barack Obama"!

Intrigued? You should be. Listen to find out more!
