    Helen Lacey and Andrew Prescott gave a seminar for English Language & Linguistics at the University of Glasgow on 21 January 2021, Representing the Voices of the People of 1381 . The seminar not only introduced the project but discussed how far it is possible to capture the voice of the insurgents themselves from the legal records which are the focus of the project. The paper argued that in reports of the conviction of rebels like Thomas atte Sole of Gravesend (shown here: TNA, KB 9/43 m. 17) who confessed that he was in the Tower of London with the rebels and split the King's bed with his sword, we can catch echoes of the rebels' own words.
