The Black Death originated in China
The Black Death reached the Black Sea and a town called Kaffa through the Silk Road
At Kaffa the Muslim Turks and Italian Merchants were at war. The Turks were infected by the Black Death
The Turks were dying rapidly from the Black Death so there were few people to fight. the Italians took this as an opportunity to flee on their boats
The Italians begun their long journey back home - but, they didn't know that they were infected with the Black Death!!
The disease spread from the Italians Merchants to the people of Italy and then, through things like trade, it spread through all of Europe.
