London and the Peasants’ Revolt: the People of 1381
15 June 2021 marks the 640th anniversary of the meeting of Richard II at Smithfield with Wat Tyler and his fellow rebels – a key event in the Peasants’ Revolt. An exciting new research project, ‘The People of 1381’ at the Universities of Reading (Adrian Bell and Herbert Eiden), Oxford (Helen Lacy and Helen Killick), Glasgow (Andrew Prescott) and Southampton (Anne Curry, and Ian Waldock and Jason Sadler of Geodata), funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, is underway. It has a ‘history from below’ approach, using legal and manorial records to explore those involved in the revolt. Currently we are tweeting the events of the revolt in this anniversary year (@peopleof1381 #reliving1381)
We are delighted to invite you all to our webinar organised through the Worshipful Company of Fletchers which is celebrating its own 650th anniversary in 2021 and of which Anne Curry is currently Master. We are also delighted that the Aldermanic Sheriff of the City of London, Michael Mainelli, will be introducing our talk.
Please join us on 15 June 2021 at 6 pm for London and the Peasants’ Revolt: the People of 1381. ‘Doors’ open at 5.40 pm UK time
