4) Lent 2 - Peasants, Princes and Pestilence

Flee your fields. Close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly ‘Great Pestilence’ is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country!

Rouse your troops with promises of blood battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body.

And if you smell a rat, my friend- get out of there!
