During the year 1348 a terrible disease called the Black Death came to Europe . The black death came to Europe on fleas.
The fleas lived on rats ,and the the rats got on the ships.
When the rats died,the fleas looked for a new home-a person. Medieval people didn't wash very often so they were very dirty and tended to have fleas. If an infected flea bit you then you would get the Black Death.
Boils the size of apples would grow on your body. You would feel hot and dizzy .You would be spitting blood.
Black Spots would appear all over your body caused by bleeding underneath the skin.You would shake all over ,if one of your boils would burst and leaked pus then you might live.
If not you would suffer a terrible death. Millions of people died in England . Villages and Towns were deserted. Houses were full of Black Death victims.
