  • Where it all started.......
  • How it started...
  • Welcome to England!
  • I'll trade you this gold bracelet for that gold leaf chain.
  • How it continued...
  • Alright!
  • This tragedy that happened called the bubonic plague or the black death started in china around the 1300s and swept across all of Asia and by the year 1347 the plague had reached Europe.
  • Why it continued.....
  • The traders that went through the silk road had rodents on their boats. Those same rodents that were on their boats had fleas that fed off of the infected blood that the rodent carried. The fleas later on jumped onto the humans that were on the boat and those people spread it to every one else when they took off the cargo.
  • How does the black death lead to the decline of feudalism?
  • NO MORE WORK!!!!
  • MORE MONEY!!!!
  • As the traders went into the village to trade, some of them already had the infected fleas on them without even knowing. So while they traded the flea jumped onto a different person and infected them by biting them. 
  • How did these individuals obtain and maintain power?
  • This plague continued because of the villagers bad hygiene. They did not know what that was back then so the way they lived was not clean enough to make their bodies less vulnerable  towards the disease. Their medicine was also not strong enough to help them recover a little bit more from the disease.
  • The black death contributed to the decline of feudalism by the death of about twenty-four million Europeans died because of the plague. Roughly one third of the population. With the deaths of so many people both peaseants, and noblemen, the economic and social structure began to crumble.
  • These individuals obtained power by the feudal lords needing them to work but with so many dead they began to demand more rights. The feudal lords serfs began to leave as well. When this happened the feudal lords decided to leave in search of more opportunities. The individuals maintained power through the peasants rebellions.
