5P POLL TAX
The Peasants' Revolt started on 30 May 1381 in Essex, when a tax collector tried to charge a Poll Tax. As the war against France wasn't going well, they introduced this tax to make up for the war.
The peasants were not happy about this decision from the government but they weren't just angry with them, since the Black Death, poor people had become increasingly angry that they were still servants and villians . They were determined to have rules about equality and less harsh rules but they also wanted a fairer amount of wealth.
