  • The Battle of Hastings
  • The Black Death
  • Ye Olde Swiss Cottage
  • The Essex/Kent Peasants
  • William The Conqueror introduces the Doomesday Book, making it easier to tax the poor. 
  • The Black Death obliterated most of the population, and thus drove wages up, Edward III however soon put a stop to this with the Ordinance of Labourers in 1349. The Parliament agreed with Edward and signed a cap of the maximum wage paid to peasants in the form of the Statute of Labourers.
  • The revolt started in 1381 when John Bampton, a tax collector, came to collect unpaid taxes.
