During the year 1348, a terrible disease called, The Black Death, came to Europe from China. The Black Death germs came to Europe on fleas, which lived on rats. Then the rats got onto the ships.
When the rats died the fleas looked for a new home- a person! Medieval people didn't wash very often so they were very dirty and tended to have fleas. If an infected flea bit you, you then would get the Black Death.
Boils the size of apples would grow on your body. You would feel hot and dizzy. You would be spitting blood.
Black spots would appear all over your body caused by bleeding underneath the skin.
You would shake all over...If one of your boils burst and leaked pus then you might live. If not you would suffer a terrible death!
I won't live!!
I will live!!
Millions of people died in England. Villages and towns were deserted and houses were full of dead Black Death victims.
