  • Part 6. In 1349 Edward III ordered the Mayor of London to clean the streets, he complained the lanes were "foul with human faces". Laws were passed to lower the amount of work for the butchers since they worked with dead animals. People who were sick were isolated until they got rid of it or died. As people died, doctors were feared. They charged money even though they couldn't help. Doctors wore long robes with hoods. Attached was a mask with a beak held with herbs to cover the smell of death.
  • Part 7. 3,000 Jews were killed in Erfurt, Germany because of the plague. The Jew tried to defend themselves from the mob of Christians. None survived the mobs. Ones that survived the Black Death were soon killed by the Christian mobs. There were almost no Jews left in Germany in 1351.
  • Part 8. On November 1st 1348, the Black Death reached London. By February 1349, 200 people were being buried every day. They were buried at the Smithfield graveyard, people died so quickly, the graveyard was piled neatly 5 feet deep.
  • Part 9. The Italian plague happened between 1629-1631 in northern Italy. it killed about 280,000 people. High death rates were in Venice and Lombardy. The Venetian troops moved to the North and Central Italy. People with the disease in Milan were moved outside the city to die or recover.
  • Part 9. The fire happened on Sept. 2nd. 1666. It was a small fire at the Pudding Lane, in the bakeshop of Thomas Farynor. A helper woke up to find the house aflame. Eventually the family escaped, except a maid. Most houses were made of wood and in a pitch formation, which could easily be damaged by fire. You couldn't stop it by buckets of water. The fire spread halfway through the London Bridge. In 1633, a fire caused a gap. It was the only thing that stopped the fire from spreading.
  • Part 9 Cont. The method to stop fire was to destroy the house in its path. But Lord Mayor Bludworth worried that the cost of rebuilding houses. The command came down by Samuel Pepys. After 3 days the fire stopped, then it continued again. The Duke of York ordered the Paper house to be destroyed so the fire would stop. The loss of property was suprising. The fire had one positive effect, decreased the deaths from the plague. London was redesigned with brick rather than timber.
