Death comes to everyone eventually Wars guns cars cancer and diseases are all ways that many people are killed Death can also be just a matter of old age But none are like the Bubonic Plague known as the Black Death of the early 1330s This single plague wiped out one third of Europes population Many other countries suffered from this plague as well China was infected through Italian trading ships that came from a trip to the black sea in October of 1347 The disease was unlike any other of its time The disease spread like wild fire though the air Medicine back then was no where able to combat the disease Medieval society never recovered from the plague causing a chain reaction Like a fire the disease spread all around Europe and even into other countries It spread to northern England where people there called it The Black Death The plague was not picky about its victims In Avignon many of there bishops were killed King Alfonso XI of Castile also fell prey to the plague In 1348 the year of the Lord Florence had a great break out of the Bubonic Plague Those who were healthy and tried to help the sick also died Anyone who looked after the sick died Back in the early 1330s no physicians had ever studied this sort of disease To the doctors there seemed to be no cure The plague did not kill just women men and children Black Death also claimed the lives of dogs cats chickens oxen donkeys and sheep and died of the same symptoms In one case over 5000 sheep were found dead in a field Victims would have a bump or area of swollen tissue under the arm Having a fever and spitting up blood was also common to those who carried the plague None of those who spit blood ever lived to tell the tail Black spots would appear on
