ALIR - The Black Death

In the late 1340s, a cataclysmic bacterial plague swept the European continent, killing up to half of the population in less than 10 years - a staggering 75 million people died. We'll use a Great CoursesĀ® series to investigate the medical understanding of the plague, trace how the plague invaded Mediterranean port cities and then moved inland, and consider how diseases and pandemics have shaped human societies and individual behaviors.
