Peasant Revolt!


Click to enlarge

Revolt- to take action against authority, or to refute control of a leader or government.

Peasant rebellions occurred over 30 times from the 12th to the 16th century across Europe. Some were over quickly but others lasted several years. This combined with the Wars lead by nobles and governments meant many of those at the lower levels of society had direct experience with arms and the hardship of combat.

When push came to shove, most peasants revolts in European history ended poorly. The frequency and intensity of these conflicts speaks to the pain felt by these segments of the population throughout the medieval and renaissance periods. Their arms were often agricultural implements or modified items made by local smiths on short notice.

Here we have several examples of these types of weapons made by hand and hammer, done quickly with little worry placed on finish. The edges are sharp and the spikes pointy but they would not look out of place in the hand of a farmer or serf. Whether gathering your neighbors to stand against an evil overlord; or some village friends out chasing the local mad scientist or evil undead out of town, these weapons are just what the angry mob ordered.
