2: In October 1347, twelve Genoese galley ships sailed into the harbor at Messina. They carried rats which carried infected fleas from Asia. It spread across Europe and reached Sicily in 1347. It reached North Africa, Italy, Spain, England, and France in 1348. It also reached Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, and Netherlands in 1349. Finally it reached Scandinaria and the Baltic lands in 1350. | How was it spread?
3: Symptoms of the Black Death | Some of the symptoms of the black death are black spots with puss coming out and blood. The most common spots to get the bumps are on the neck, armpits, and groin area. The inevitable sign of death is a nose bleed if you had the Black Death.

8: Effects on the Economy | One effect was 1/3 of Europe's population died from the Black Death. That meant many people weren't working, and that meant food shortage and many other problems for society.
10: This is how the black death affected Europe.
11: Ending | The Black death was a tragic thing that happened to Europe, and it really affected the whole world back in ancient Europe. I'm just glad I didn't live back then because they had no cure or no medicine at least now we have medicine just in case something like that happens again.
12: The Black Plague killed many people and they were laid out in the back of churches and wrapped so they could be carried to the graveyard as one big funeral. Since they could not treat the plague people had to suffer and die in their beds but sometimes had visits from doctors.
13: When the plague passed the people of medieval Europe were relieved and scared that it would eventually come back another day.
