The Black Death started in Central Asia.
The Bubonic plague traveled on merchants ships through the Mediterranean Sea and on the Silk Road into Europe.
It was carried by rodents. The fleas would bite the rats and the fleas would carry the disease from the rats to the humans.
The fleas would bite the humans. The people would start coughing, then they would get black swells on their body, and would die a few days later.
30-50% of the European population died.
Soon the black rat came and it was immune to the flea disease. After this the Black Death would come in every decade for 70 years.
