Bubonic Plague -Kiana Perez
This storyboard does not have a description.
Europe was in the system of feudalism and chivalry around the 14th century. Cities were gaining high populations to the point where people were living on the streets.
Peasants, who were very poor, worked for lords in return for protection.
At the same time, there were trade ships coming into ports on Italy.
On these ships were rats from Asia, carrying fleas with a disease known as the "bubonic Plague".
Rats were just about everywhere: houses, cabins, restrooms, streets, bedrooms, fireplaces, etc.
The peasants were not very hygienic so, the disease spread really quickly. In search for a new home, the fleas would latch onto humans when the rats would die.
