The Roundheads were supporters of Parliament and Oliver Cromwell during the English Civil War (1642 - 1646). They opposed the Royalists. They wore short haircuts, hence the name. The Roundheads surged strongly in the Civil War as the 'New Model Army'. The military set-up boasted better training, equipment and food than the enemy Royalists.

Their name derives from their round metal helmets.
