Product Description
This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: The Peasants Revolt. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Medieval England experienced few revolts but the most serious was the Peasants’ Revolt which took place in June 1381. A violent system of punishments for offenders was usually enough to put off peasants from causing trouble.

Most areas in England also had castles in which soldiers were garrisoned, and these were usually enough to guarantee reasonable behavior among medieval peasants. An army of peasants from Kent and Essex marched on London. They did something no-one had done before or since – they captured the Tower of London.

The Archbishop of Canterbury and the King’s Treasurer were killed. The king, Richard II, was only 14 at the time but despite his youth, he agreed to meet the peasants at a place called Mile End. But, what were the peasants angry about and why had they come to London?
