The BLACK death

The BLACK death

Storyboard Text

  • Prices for goods dropped as there were few people to buy the food so both rich and the poor could afford the goods.
  • Crops began to fail due to the poor maintenance as 1/3 of Europe was wiped out by the plague so there were not many farmers to take care of the crops.
  • People started to develop legal system and didn't rely on the church so the church didn't have the same amount of authority as before the plague.
  • Many villages and towns were deserted or burned after the plague as most of the people died
  • There was a high need for different types of jobs such as gravedigger, physicians, priests and many more as most of them died from the plague. Labours were given higher wage as they were hard to find therefore they were leading a good life.
  • Around 25 million people, all around the world, especially Europe, died in a painful death caused by the plague. This was a large impact on the population as it took around 200 years to recover.
