Professor of Modern British History Rohan McWilliam from Anglia Ruskin University gives a series of short lectures about some of history's most important rebels. In this episode, Rohan looks at how the use of fictitious leaders can bring about social change, and how 'Captain Swing' in particular gave farmers in 1830s England a voice for change. Look out for the next installment on Robin Hood, coming soon!
