Introduction The research project I will be talking about is The Black Death also commonly known as the Bubonic Plague that happened in the 14th century in Medieval Europe. It was harmful to the people and the economy of Europe. The Black Death caused many people to die starting from China all the way to Europe resulting in a decrease in the economy and the armed forces. Originated The Black Death originally came from Central Asia during the 1338s and made its way to China and Italy by 1346. It then infected the Black Sea Port in Kaffa by 1347 and went to China westward traveling through the Silk Road.
The Black Death, also known as the bubonic plague, had devastating effects on most of Europe that led to severe decreases in population, religious changes, and social changes as well. Severe decreases in population are one of the effects of the Black Death. “It killed tens of millions
It also shows how easily Europeans could convince the Native Americans. As a result, many Native Americans lost all their freedom and became slaves. They worked on plantations for Europeans and lost everything. Not to mention, diseases were killing tons of Native Americans at this time, which also resulted in a population decrease. Population decrease of Native Americans made slavery go down.
Also a famine occurred in China claimed the lives of nearly two million people after the flood Hwang River. The spread of agricultural pests spread of diseases among crops could destroy the crop altogether and thus lead to a severe famine. An example of what happened in Ireland after the potato crop damage in full in the middle of the nineteenth century led to the low population. Very significantly as a result of death or emigration to escape. Poverty or famine, may also be cause from some insects that destroy private agricultural crops locusts.
Also, Frederick the Great improved his country’s schools in order to promote the advancement of knowledge, with the higher aim of bettering the lives of his subjects. Furthermore, Frederick the Great implemented the ideas of the Enlightenment into the legal system and bureaucracy of Prussia. For example, the laws of Prussia were simplified, the torture of prisoners was abolished, and judges were able to declare cases quickly. These new advancements allowed the officials of Frederick the Great to put their hard work and honesty to good use. One of the most significant changes that Frederick II made was to agriculture and industry, which included him being able to control the grain prices.
This caused them to lose many lives due to this. Natural disasters like an earthquake and flood killed many and them, then plague wiped out thousands of people. This caused Rome to become weak because many people in the army died and many people that helped run Rome died. But then because of the floods and earthquake it killed many people and destroyed many things which really put Rome in a tight spot. “The second year of the reign of Valens (366 CE)... the Roman world was shaken by a violent and destructive earthquake.” “But the tide soon returned with the weight of an immense flood which was severely felt on the coast of sicily, Greece, and Egypt… Fifty thousand persons had lost their lives in the flood.” After Rome lost 50,000 people in the flood the plague killed thousands more.
The initial catalyst for the loss of the black footed ferret population was poisoning efforts made in the early 1900s. The target of the poisoning was the prairie dog population, which in turn caused a sharp decline in the black footed ferret population. The most common poisons used by North Dakota residents are zinc phosphide and Rosal. Most people dislike prairie dogs, so they use poison to terminate them. This decline in the prairie dog population in turn affects the black footed ferret population.
Since the ancient times, Smallpox has devastated the world, killing millions of people. Often referred to as the speckled monster, the smallpox disease originated in the new world when Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors and early english settlers arrived in the americas. Although there had been attempts to cure the disease, including variolation, (that came from asia 2,000 years ago), they all had a high risk of death. It wasn’t until 1796, when Edward Jenner, a english paleontologist came up with a new form of vaccine, it was called inoculation. The disease decimated the local population and was instrumental in the fall of the empires of the Aztecs and the Incas.
Also, Cecil Rhodes greatly affected the continent when he caused “The Scramble for Africa”, or in other words, a mass colonization of Africa by European countries. After the Europeans left Africa, they left the African people financially crippled. Therefore, Africa had no way to provide
In the mid-1800s, Ireland was a nation which depended on agriculture. The Irish were among the poorest people in the world, relying on crops to feed their families. The Great Famine, or An Gorta Mór, commenced with the potato failure in 1845. It lasted for six years and caused the deaths of over one million men, women and children. It also led to a huge increase in emigration with two million people fleeing the country in the search of both food and a life free from corruption.
