In recent times, the City of London has been subjected to violence by those who believe it spawns inequality. But this is the latest phase in a history of direct action which has made the ancient City of London a truly unquiet city.
What made William Fitz Osbert a popular martyr in 1196?
What was really behind the events of 1381?

And is there room for education and non-violent protest in today’s world?
From Fitzosbert’s protest in 1196 to Occupy London, this tour looks at the politics behind some of the moments of unrest that have disturbed London’s ancient heart.
