Teacher Fellowship Programme: The People of 1381

Teacher Fellowship Programme 2022

This Teacher Fellowship programme focused on developing the teaching of medieval history and the history of revolt, popular protest, power and the people, in partnership with The People of 1381 project.

The project is focused on revealing new insights into the diverse range of people who played a part in the Peasants' Revolt of 1381, giving more detail on the lives of 'ordinary' people in the later Middle Ages. The programme gave participants access to the new database being created, supported work with medieval primary sources (in translation), and enabled them to see at first hand how a major, multi-institution project is configured.

The programme was led by Helen Snelson and participants worked closely with the project team: Professor Adrian Bell (Reading), Professor Anne Curry (Southampton), Professor Andrew Prescott (Glasgow), Dr Helen Lacey (Oxford), Dr Helen Killick (Oxford) and Dr Herbert Eiden (Reading).

Resources from the programme are now available  to access for free on The People of 1381 website:
