The 14th Century was an age of great change, the Black Death, revolts in the churches and the market squares, cannons, trade expansion and weather extremes. What happened in England was affected by what happened in Persia. Likewise, events in the farmer's hut directly impacted life in the royal palace. Here are planted the seeds of the Reformation and the Renaissance, political and personal freedoms and the emergence of science from the shadows of the graveyard to the University steps. We'll try to take in the scope of it all in an hour.
