Nearly £1 million funding awarded to new research project on the Peasants' Revolt
The Arts and Humanities Research Council have awarded nearly £1 million to the innovative multi-institution project which will be led by Professor Adrian Bell.
The Peasants' Revolt was the most popular rebellion in the summer of 1381. Through this project, 'The People of 1381' will discover the complex economic, social and political dynamics of the rebellion.
The project will also be investigating the participation of social groups such as household servants, soldiers and women. Geographic Information Systems will be used to map the development and structure of the revolt. Community engagement such as a travelling exhibition and an education collaboration programme will also be encouraged via this project.

Tweets, Barn Bubbles and Medieval Real Estate
For the last three years we have been conducting research on the Leverhulme funded project, The First Real Estate Bubble: Land Prices and Rents in Medieval England c.1200 - 1550. We have evolved new ways of working which have produced findings that should challenge the established historiography.
