Information on the Black Death
In Medieval England, the Black Death was to kill 1.5 million people out of an estimated total of 4 million people between 1348 and1350.
The Black Death wreaked havoc throughout Medieval England. The Black Death killed one in three people and was to have a direct link to the Peasants Revolt of 1381. ‘Cures’ for the Black Death went from the absurd to having a degree of common sense about them. Regardless of this, the casualty figures for the Black Death were massive.
During the Middle Ages, the Black Death ravaged Europe and left nearly a third of the population dead. The epidemic reached its zenith in the years 1348 to 1350, though the disease never vanished entirely.
