In 1347, rats on ships brought fleas infected with the bacillus that caused the Bubonic Plague, or Black Death. Within four years, between 1347 and 1351, the Death had spread across much of Europe. Between 25 and 50 percent of the population of Europe died of the disease. The Plague led to fanatical religious practices such as flagellation, when people whipped themselves to atone for the sins they believed had caused the disease. Wealthy and powerful people fled to country.
The Black Death struck Paris in 1349, and quickly spread to England, Scotland, and beyond (Galli 1). Most of Europe had been struck by the mid-1350’s (Galli 1). Some areas saw a mortality rate of ninety percent, while others were “lucky” with just twenty percent (Galli 1). Mass burial pits were dug for bodies (Galli 1). High death rates meant mass burials (Aberth
Ring around the rosie, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, ⅓ of Europe got obliterated by the black plague. The black plague, also called the Black Death, began in East Asia then traveled to Europe . The disease was carried by rats & it caused fever, developed lesions, and death within a few days of having it. The citizens in Europe, at the time, were unaware of what the cause of the plague was, leading to many different responses. Europeans had reacted in various ways towards the black plague like using it as a means to collect money, strengthen beliefs, & causing deaths.
What were the repercussions of losing one third of the general population? The Black Death was an influential factor in many societal changes that occurred during the 14th century. These changes were the depopulation of Europe, reduced labor force, rising wages, and increasing slave demand, government fixing wages promoting rebellion of the peasants and other workers. Depopulation in Western Europe occurred rapidly as during the 13th century after the sudden increase in population the Black Plague infected peasants which were usually farmers and also made up most of the population. This infection and
The outbreak of the plague in Europe is thought to have been caused by an infection of the bacterium, Yersinia pestis, carried by fleas on rats from central Asia and China brought to Europe on twelve Genoese trading ships. The plague is airborne and can also be transmitted by the bite of contaminated fleas or touch by other humans or organisms infected with the disease. It is a contagious and indiscriminate illness that appears in three forms: bubonic, pneumonic, and septicemic; all of which are fatal and leave the infected to die a gruesome death. The Bubonic Plague is most common, showing signs of “painful and enlarged or swollen lymph nodes” also called buboes in the groin, armpit or neck and other symptoms, such as fevers and chills, headaches, fatigue and muscle aches. The Pneumonic Plague is the least common form that affects the lungs and progresses rapidly.
Why did the Black Death kill so many people in the 14th century? The plague was the most devastating disease in world history. There were three types of the Plague which included the bubonic, septicaemic and the pneumonic plague. Fleas living on rats that came from Asia on a trade ship spread the bubonic plague, the septicaemic plague is created by the entrance of bacteria from their multiplying place into the blood vessels. There are two different forms of pneumonic pest.
An estimate of 400,000 people were killed in 2003 directly or indirectly from the attacks. Some of those African tribes include the Fur, Masait, Jebel, Aranga, and Zaghwa tribes. As a result to all the attacks, there were thousands of dead bodies scattered across the land and tossed into wells. The bodies tossed into the wells led to the contamination of a majority of Darfur’s water supple and desertification of the area. Access to water is highly needed in Sudan currently, but the country has already became neglected.
Rats and the Black Death The Black Death will forever be one of the scariest and catastrophic disease outbreaks that stuck mankind. In 1347 the Black Death surfaced wiping out entire towns, eventually claiming the lives of some 60 percent of the European population. Most of our history teachers and historians blame the outbreak on the fleas carried by the black rat. From my research on the topic I am amazed to say that some of the articles that I have read have me rethinking what I had been taught over this topic may have been wrong or inaccurate. According to this article, I believe that black rats are no responsible for the speared of the Black Death.
In fact, they happen so often that some people grow desensitized to them, but Kees reacted differently. One might believe that, as nature applied its full force and awful attacks were carried out, Kees actually noticed and wrote them all down. Thus, “The Coming of the Plague” was written. According to Coyle, a fire on the ship, Morro Castle, burnt it to ash and took the lives of 137 passengers on September 8, 1934. After the inferno, the stanza “September was when it began” may very well have made its first appearance.
One that will be talked about is that one must be cautious. In some of the books the younger growing character will be told to be patent or cautious when dealing with a problem. Now going to the idea how the problems in the books can relate to real life problems. One that is a popular one is Blaggut a rat that was a boatswain on the ship Pearl Queen (Brian Jacques, the bellmaker). Now the problem is he followed his captain a rat called Slipp, now Slipp was a bad creature that at the end of the book he killed one of the members in Redwall Abbey, Blaggut being more of a kinder creature even though he is a rat which are usually bad in the books, when faced with his captain killing someone he decided to not follow his captain but to kill his captain as revenge.
The Black Death, over a span of five years, killed 25 million people and it was almost impossible to survive. First, the Plague was just an outbreak of the bubonic plague, which is a disease, created by the bacteria Yersinia Pestis. The first known case of the Black Plague was recorded in China, 224 B.C.E. In 1348, twelve Genoese boats docked at the Sicilian port of Messina, Italy, after they had finished sailing the Black Sea. Rats that lived on the ships spread the Plague to Britain in 1348.
Rats, roaming the streets, full of gutter and trash, the rats had fleas that were like they were trapped and trying to become free, but it was pretty easy to do so. The fleas would jump off the rats onto humans, causing people 's skin to turn blacker than the sky at night; people were dying numerously, it was said at the time that it was caused by bad smell, and cured by bathing, but it wasn’t. Not only did people at the time have what was known as “ The black plague” but on top of that children were getting chicken pox and dying, cholera which also people thought at the time was from bad smell, but was actually the disgusting, used, water people would drink. It was awful to have a disease in Victorian Britain. Diseases in Victorian Britain and what the diseases were, how they were thought to be cured, how they actually were cured, and how it was like for people who had the disease is what I am talking about.
