  • “A History of the World Through Disease.” Postclassical Era - A History of the World Through Diseases, ahistoryof theworldthroughd isease.weebly.com /postclassical-era.html. 
  • The Black Death originated in Asia and traveled to Africa through the Silk Trade route. Most of the disease was distributed through rats which is how many of the population of Europe was affected. The Bubonic Plague travel route was one of the main reasons that the majority of Europe was killed and was a lasting effect of settlement over time.
  • EVIDENCE PT. 2
  • Mason, Emma. “Your 60-Second Guide to the Black Death.” History Extra, www.historyextra.com /feature/your-60 -second-guide-facts-black -death-how-when-why. 
  • While the epidemic of the Black Death was happening, many people who had attracted the disease, left the country and tried to go somewhere different for a chance of still being able to live and get rid of the disease. The issue with that was that many countries that were not strongly affected by the plague would not let anyone with the plague into their country and kept them in quarantine so that the plague would not spread more.
  • Dawn. “The Black Plague.” The Black Plague - All Empires, All Empires, www.allempires.com/article/index.php?q=the_black_plague. 
  • The causation of the Black Plague killed an estimated 25 million people in four years.  Any group of people that had migrated or settled in Europe was most likely killed by the plague. The Black death was known for causing over half the population of Europe. To this day the plague is still considered one of the deadliest diseases that killed tons of people.
  • REASONING The Black Death was a disease that affected migration and settlement to Europe for the rest of history. The significance of this plague was so great because the Europeans were not immune to it and because of that, the disease had a greater effect on people. Many of the people did not have a cure for the plague and that is why so many people died. Many were focused on it more religiously than scientifically. The migration of the people with the Black Death is what put them in quarantine and saved other countries from being completely taken over by the plague. The Silk Roads were important in communicating how the Black Death came to Europe, because of the trade route, rats and other rodents carried the Black Death and caused many Europeans to be affected. Pretty much everyone in the city and rural country all were hit by the plague. There was not really an opposing opinion for the plague. Everyone knew that this disease was bad and that it would be remembered as one of the deadliest disesase to go down in history.
