Course Description

In 1396, Richard II gave York the status of a county in its own right, a sword of state and a cap of maintenance, as a reward for the city's loyalty. Yet in 1380 and 1381, York's citizens had revolted against the king, ransacked church property and attacked Bootham Bar. This day school examines the reasons why the city revolted, including the Black Death, the consequences of revolt, and how York regained the trust of Richard II. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King's Manor.
