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.
