From the towns and villages they came, fortified by the words of John Ball and fired by an anger borne of crippling poverty and unjust taxes. Driven on by the charismatic but mysterious Wat Tyler, the peasant army stood at the very gates of London, only to see their prize snatched by the treachery and false promises of King Richard II and his government.
This DVD features atmospheric re-enactments, dramatised "eye-witness accounts", expert historical analysis and period imagery to paint a vivid portrait of the main characters and events of the great people's rebellion of 1381. (From the back cover)
