A depiction of arguably one of the most famous uprisings: the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. Led by Wat Tyler, John Ball and Jack Straw, the aggrieved peasantry's want for social change had been building up over a few decades since the catastrophe of the Black Death in 1348. Although the pestilence's knock-on effect and mass depopulation gave some element of power to the lower class, as their scarce labour was sought after, this was only temporary until authorities implimented the Ordinance of Labourers of 1349 in an attempt to cap wages at pre-plague levels, impose price controls, and demand that able-bodied people under 60 work; and the Statute of Labourers of 1351, which was an attempt to restrict peasants' movement and regulate the labour force in response to its shortage. However, these measures were never all that successful, and only increased the politicisation of the lower classes, culminating in an event like The Peasants' Revolt. This politicisation also occurred across Europe too, with two revolts in particular successfully holding regional government, if only briefly (Florence, 1378-82; Liege, 1384 - both workers' governments). It should be noted however, that although the English Peasants'Revolt was suppressed, Feudal serfdom ended soon afterwards.
All this social turmoil paints an important picture of the beginnings, or at least a more concrete idea, of class struggle and consciousness during the 14th century.
