This week, Lauren B. tells us about the horrors and injustices experienced by the peasants in medieval England. By fleshing out the effects of the plague and the oppressive measures that colonial rulers forced upon the surfs, Lauren lays the groundwork for the story of the Peasant Revolt of 1381. Tune in next week to hear the rest!
Lauren B is an incredibly talented subsistence maker who creates masks and other socially and environmentally ethical products out of secondhand materials.
