chapter 13; reply to the below Q&N, How did the rebels choose their targets, both human and material? What were they seeking? Against what were they protesting?COLLAPSE The peasant rebels chose their targets among the nobility and the leaders of the church. This excerpt from the chronicles of Thomas Walsingham mentioned the destruction of the Temple Bar, the place where the lawyer apprentices lived; the burning of the Savoy, the residence of the Duke of Lancaster and the noble house of the Hospital of St. John; the brutal beheading of the archbishop and the thirty Flemings; and widespread killing and destruction. They were protesting against the crippling tax imposed on them by the nobility and the church in spite of their worsening conditions, and the nobility's prevention of the breakdown of serfdom, a process that meant more freedom and opportunities for peasants. By breaking havoc on the persons and properties of the nobles and church leaders, the peasant rebels aimed to force them into meeting their demands. In the end both sides reached a compromise, as King Richard II issued a charter the peasants asked for, and the peasants ceased the revolt and dispersed. http://ghc.edu/sites/default/files/pictures/library/hist117week4.pdf
