1 By Martin Jones and Jonah Grob

2  The Bubonic Plague, also known as the Black Death was a disease that swept through Europe, killing around twenty-five million people.

3 The Plague started in 1347 Dark Age doctors thought the disease came from rats. However the real source of the disease came from the fleas the infected rats carried.

4 People infected with the Black Death quickly developed a high fever, headache, chills, muscle pain and began coughing. Once these symptoms were displayed, there was no way to save the victim.

5 The Plague was brought to Europe by a merchant fleet carrying trading goods from The Black Sea in Asia, to Manilla, a town in southern Italy.

6 The Bubonic Plague killed one third of the entire population in Europe.That means one out of every three people were killed. This picture shows the widespread destruction the plague inflicted.

7 So many people died that survivors were unable to bury them all, instead people were buried hundreds at a time in pits called mass graves.

8 Because of the widespread death, Employment plummeted and surviving workers demanded increasingly high pay. As a result, inflation began to rise rapidly.

9  The Black Death caused most trade between countries and peoples to stop.  It brought back times of Feudal leaders.  However, some historians speculate that the Bubonic Plague issued in an era of peace and prosperity culminating in the Renaissance.
