Book: The Great Revolt by Paul Dowswell via @BloomsburyEd

Thrilling historical adventure set during the English peasants' revolt of 1381, published by Bloomsbury. Ideal for KS3

It’s 1381 and the king, Richard II, has imposed a new tax on the people. In the village of Aylesford, Tilda and her ploughman father were already struggling to make ends meet. As serfs they have no rights to move freely or earn wages for their work. Tilda is desperate for a better life than the village can offer, so when the villagers begin to rebel she is swept up in the excitement.

Tilda and her father travel to London with the others to petition the king, but the peaceful rebellion they hoped for soon ignites into violence, mayhem and treachery. Tilda’s fight for a better life is only just beginning…

This page-turning adventure sheds new light on a period of history which is covered in the KS3 curriculum and will have readers gripped from start to finish.
