My storyboard of how the black death made feudalism collapse.
Hi! My name is James! I'll be teaching you guys about the bubonic plague and how it contributed to the decline of feudaslism.
The Decline of Feudalism By: Andrew Casem
First off, the bubonic plague was a disease, also called the black death, that killed millions of people in ancient Europe. It gave you black spots, fever, headaches and vomiting.
It first originated in Central Asia in 1300s and it spread through rats, fleas, and people who had it. It got spreaded by boats and traveling people.
This is my storyboard on how the bubonic plague affected feudalism.
I'll take a shower 2 weeks from now.
Since people didn't know simple hygiene, it spread very easily and stayed in people's bodies.
These were the symptoms of the bubonic plague.
The reason this all affected feudalism is because serfs were free to leave the lands of the lords to seek higher wages with the vast labour shortages and the immediate economic effect of the plague was that the huge death toll created a serious labor shortages.
I don't want to get sick! I'm leaving this land!
This is how the bubonic plague was spread.
In conclusion, the bubonic plague heavily affected feudalism because of the number people who died, and how the people who survived didn'd want to die from it.
This is how the plague killed so many people.
This is how it affected feudalism.
This is my storyboard of how the black death caused feudalism to crumble.
