Episode Summary

EDIT
The Peasant
AIRED:
The stereotypical medieval peasant is a toothless, filthy, ignorant wretch, a slave to his feudal lord. Terry discovers a very different reality. They had more holidays than us, their houses were bigger, they frequently ate better and had more influence in the corridors of power. The average peasant knew the law, as he was often left to manage his own land and community affairs. Until the onset of the plague, most peasants were also healthy. So why did it all end in the Peasants' Revolt?moreless
