BOB THE ROBBER AND THOSE PESKY PEASANTS!
- Dates: Wednesday 10th December
- Time: 12:30pm
Can we hold Lord Treasurer Robert Hales entirely responsible for the so called “Peasants Revolt” of 1381?
Lord Treasurer Robert Hales, also Grand Prior of the Order of St John, was beheaded on 14th June 1381 by rebels on Tower Hill for his involvement in the collection of unpaid poll taxes.
This talk will examine the factors which led to the rebellion, as well as determining whether this was really a revolt of the peasants.
