Oh, rats! Take a deeper look at what really caused the Black Death, the deadliest pandemic recorded in human history.
While news of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 shocked the world in 2020, it still isn't the largest and deadliest pandemic in history. That title is still held by the Plague. This disease, also known as the Black Death, spread throughout Asia, Africa, and Europe in the fourteenth century and claimed an astonishing 50 million lives by the time it officially ended. Author Roberta Edwards takes readers back to these grimy and horrific years, revealing just how this pandemic began, how society reacted to the disease, and the impact it left on the world.
