Moreover, the Black Death caused a gastric drop in the economy. Workers died, prices rose, and lords pushed laws so peasants couldn't demand higher wages leading to many revolts and rebellions. Due to the death of so many people, there weren't enough people buying products so the prices rose tremendously. Since the plague started killing millions of workers, lords would try force the survivors to work. But, the surviving workers began to demand higher wages since there were higher prices in the sales market.

It progressed up through the Bristol Channel to Bristol before advancing along the Severn to Gloucester.
The Black Codes were legal codes set into place, primarily by the Southern states, in the interest of opposing the reality of free colored slaves. Essentially, the Black Codes were passed as a means of dealing with the situation regarding the emancipation of slaves. The Black Codes dealt with vagrancy, apprenticeship, labor contracts, and civil & legal rights. In regards to the laws of vagrancy, each state expressed their definition of the word “vagrant.” These definitions, as well as other laws, sometimes specifically applied to colored people, or as most of the time, they were stated in general terms that were intended to fit the “Negro’s condition” and to be enforced with regard to colored people.

The term “ the dark age was coined by Italian scholar Petrarch, but “the dark ages” may not have been so dark after all. Some say the 1,000 year period from 500 to 1500 was a time of achievements and success — a growth period. This would make sense due to the numerous achievements in economics, education, and human rights. During the so-called “dark ages”, Europeans demanded rights and flourished economically.
Most children are scared of things such as monsters under the bed or the dark, but this story does not occur in these places, nor does it occur anywhere close.
