Such as....

http://www.british-civil-wars.co.uk/

(I suspect this was in the large thread, should we salvage the many rather handy links from in there to collect them here btw?)
Useful thing for when trying to remember who was who as well as what and where they did whatever they did. Especially their list of battles and sieges.

Something to listen to if I've not linked this before:

Technically events after the civil war but still somewhat interesting and relevant.
