The Black Death

By : Ethan Johnson

Why was the plague so deadly

  • The black death killed 1/3 of Europe's population
  • The medicines back then were no where near where they need to be to combat the plague
  • Nobody knew why the plague was happening or what was the cases of it.

Citizen's lived differnt during this time than during a non-plague

  • Citizens lived either in total distress or very happy.
  • Many citizens lived as they were " going to die tomorrow" because that was a possibility
  • Many families split apart in fear of contracting the disease from an infected family member


The Outcomes of it.

  • Peasants were valued higher
  • Land was at a much higher price, due to lack of crops
  • Goods skyrocketed in price
  • Peasants rose to a higher power than they once were held
