Rebellions, revolts & discontent - Peasant Revolts Special

Issue 112. Peasant Revolts COVER.jpg

Revolts, rebellion and discontent. From Richard II’s role in the Peasant Revolt, to an eleventh century uprising in Byzantium, to a round-up of some of the bloodiest and violent clashes of the age, and finally, to the role of figures like Reynard the Fox as a symbol of the subversive peasant hero. In addition to this, we take you on a trip to one of only five chained libraries in Europe, look at the role of agriculture in Iceland’s medieval economy and follow a new dig at Coldingham priory.
