The first evidence of the black plague ( more commonly known as the bubonic plague or black death) was in the 1300's. Most people believe that the first person to actually discover this disease was Gabriele de Mussis in 1346.This plague started in Central Asia and started spreading as the plague was highly contagious. The plague hit Europe in the mid- 1300's and instantly spread throughout the continent. The plague was very deadly and although the exact number is unknown the plague has been estimated to have killed 75-200 million people in total from the 1300's to the mid 1600's. The plague has also been estimated to have taken the lives of a third of Europe's total population. The black plague was caused because of a bacteria called yersinia pestis. The host of this deadly plague was usually the European black rat but could also be fleas ( the fleas would bite humans - pullex irritans). Farmers in the Elizabethan era were especially in danger of catching the plague because of their interacting with different animals ( a lot of different animals carried the plague after the plague started spreading).
