0 Reviews
Through the use of much unpublished material, this book offers a balanced assessment of the realities of life in rural England during the later Middle Ages, based as much on the perspective of the peasants themselves as that of their landlords. The Great Revolt of 1381 provides a dramatic glimpse of peasant grievances and the obvious peasant discontent which was its cause helps to explain many of the changes forced upon landlords during the ensuing 120 years.
