CE 1349 - The Black Death hits England

CE 1349 - The Black Death hits England

The Black Death, also known as the Plague, was an epidemic of bubonic plague that spread throughout Europe and England in CE 1349.

It is estimated that up to a third of the population of England died during the plague.

The disease was spread through fleas from infected rats and was highly contagious.

Symptoms of the Black Death included fever, vomiting, and black spots on the skin.

People believed that the plague was caused by sin and sought religious penance for their sins.

To try to contain the spread of the disease, people were quarantined and movement was limited.

The Black Death caused a shift in the social structure of England, as the surviving population had to cope with the loss of a large number of people.
