Why was the black death is more significant than the peasants revolt?

Because of these points... : Although the Peasants revolt was very good for people in England, the Black Death affected people out of Britain because the terrible disease spread around the whole world. The Black Death had a bigger impact, as it affected as many people as 75 million, but the Peasants revolt killed an average of 3267 people. If it wasn't for the Black Death, there wouldn't have been a Peasants revolt, because so many deaths caused by the Black Death led to the peasants revolting. The Black Death had a bigger impact on more peoples lives because many people died and the peasants felt they were worth more so they rose against authority to gain freedom from their lords and to see if they could gain more power and improve their lives forever.

What plague did wages rose and trade declined?

The Black Death caused the death of many peasants so they were in higher demand but there was less supply. The landlords had to pay the peasants more to keep them but eventually the government passed a law, i can't remember the name right now, which stopped peasants being paid more then a certain amount. This caused the peasants revolt. Trade declined after the Black Death as there were less crops, less traders and less peasants. Thanks!
