The Black Death or Black Plague was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history. Before the Black Death came to England grew more rapidly than agricultural production. They were getting better in their economy. Many people lived only at subsistent level. They were not living lavish or anything just alright. The Black Death arrived in Europe by sea in October 1347 when 12 trading ships docked at the port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. People who got infected with the black plague were expected to live only 5 days. Everyone in Europe was going crazy trying to stay away from the disease and trying their own home remedies to get rid of the disease. 30 - 50 percent of the population was killed in every country.
