Description

Gerrard Winstanley was the most prominent of the True Levellers, called Diggers by others. After the defeat of the Royalists in the English Civil War (1640s), the True Levellers wanted an end to class distinctions and private property. To this end they began to dig the commons, planting crops to share with the poor. Alas, Winstanley was a thousand years ahead of his time.
