Rather than viewing history from the perspective of the rulers, Peter Stubley reveals what life was like for the poor as England developed from a feudal society into a world power. Drawing on a wide range of contemporary sources, this book vividly recreates the grinding existence of labourers, paupers and beggars from the Norman Conquest to the Victorian era, via the Peasants’ Revolt, the Civil War, Gin Alley and the Luddite riots.
