Transcript of Black Death Inquiry and Research Questions - Soc.St. Presentation_Grade 8
The Black Death changed the demography of Europe substantially. Aside from the Plague deaths , there was also a decline in the birth rate.
The net result was that by 1400, Europe's population was half what it had been in 1345. This is known with some accuracy from many Medieval church, census, and tax records that have survived. Europe's population took about six generations to recover .

WHAT CAUSED THE BLACK DEATH?
The Black Death killed 50 million people in the 14th century, or 60 per cent of Europe’s entire population.
The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people and peaking in Europe in the years 1346–53
The Black Death is thought to have originated in the arid plains of Central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk Road, reaching Crimea by 1343
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF PLAGUE?
The disease's most common form, refers to telltale buboes—painfully swollen lymph nodes—that appear around the groin, armpit, or neck.
1.) Bubonic Plague,
Which spreads in the bloodstream, comes either via fleas or from contact with plague-infected body matter.
2.) Septicemic Plague,
The most infectious type, is an advanced stage of bubonic plague when the disease starts being passed directly, person to person, through airborne droplets coughed from the lungs. If left untreated, bubonic plague kills about 50 percent of those it infects. The other two forms are almost invariably fatal without antibiotics.
3.) Pneumonic Plague,
This was a widespread epidemic of the Bubonic Plague that passed from Asia and through Europe in the
mid fourteenth century
. The first signs of the Black Plague in Europe were present around the
fall of 1347
. In the span of
, the Black Death killed
one third of all the people in Europe.
is an infectious disease caused by bacteria called
. These bacteria are found mainly in rodents, particularly rats, and in the fleas that feed on them. Other animals and humans usually contract the bacteria from rodent or flea bites.
Pus and blood oozing from painful
Black lumps in their armpits and groin
Bruised-looking skin because of internal bleeding
Terrible smell of their sweat, blood and ‘waste’
500 years after the first epidemic, Scientists discovered what caused this:
Rats; were part of the everyday life and had fleas
Disease lived on the fleas and was carried quickly because fleas could jump from rats to people easily
The understanding of plague really began during the Chinese and Indian epidemics in the latter decade of the nineteenth century. During the Chinese epidemic,
(1863-1943), independently identified the cause of the plague, but not without controversy.
Alexandre Emile Jean Yersin was a Swiss and naturalized French physician and bacteriologist.
This led to:
many Jews fleeing to Poland and Russia.
distrust in God and the church as people realized that religion could do nothing to stop the spread of the disease.
The ones who survived the epidemic now had many more opportunities for jobs because there wasn't as many people. This meant that employer had to fight for the workers and to do this they had to make salaries higher and working conditions better.
The Black Death changed the way people viewed the world in many ways.
Jewish people were now targeted even more, because they were accused of starting the plague by poisoning the water because their mortality rates were often much lower.
What effects did the black death have on society?
The Black Death changed the demography of Europe substantially. Aside from the Plague deaths , there was also a decline in the birth rate. The net result was that by 1400, Europe's population was half what it had been in 1345. This is known with some accuracy from many Medieval church, census, and tax records that have survived.
