The Black Death

The Black Death

Storyboard Text

  • Oh No!! 
  • Mam, Your husband is very sick, we think he may have the black death
  • Fleas bit rats and caused the rats to get infected, and because rats were very common in the middle ages, that is why the black death was able to spread so quickly.
  • Please god, let me survive this horrible plague and same with my family.
  • Soon enough after being bitten by the rat, Jim developed buboes and discovered he had the black death.
  • Soon enough the plague became so powerful that it killed Jim.
  • I used to be a serf and now I'm the king of the world!!!!
  • Billy started to pray, he prayed that he survived and that his family survived too. Since the black death had killed so much of the population, he was one of the only ones left on his manor.
  • Billy then came down with a horrible case of the black death, and now there were barely any serfs left to work on the manor.
  • But after the black death was over, serfs were important because there weren't very many of them so they received higher wages and began to move up the social ladder leading to the end of feudalism.
