BC: This project was made by Craig Delany, and Blake Slusaw. We wanted to do this project because we both like learning about the black death, and we thought it was really intresting. Were both students at Eyer Middle school in Macungie, Pennsylvania. We both like to learn something new.

2: The Black Plague was a rapid moving disease that affected most of Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. People infected by it would have black blotches form on them caused by bleeding under the skin. It would also cause great physical pain. It killed over 20 million people. | Introduction
3: The disease was often carried by fleas and rats. The more people that got infected and died, the more rats there were. They became overpopulated, especially in England. This caused more people to be bitten and it all went in a never-ending circle. | The Spread of the Plague
4: This is a plague doctor in his special suit. The mask is stuffed with herbs and The cloak was made of leather that stretched from head to toe. The doctors thought that the plague was pneumonic, they thought it spread through the air. Although the plague was bubonic, the suit still allowed them to survive the plague most of the time. | Doctors | A mask of a plague doctor that is stuffed with hergs and the cloak is ade of leather that stretched from head to toe.
5: Along with thinking that the plague was pneumonic, there were also many other things that people thought about the plague that was not true. One of them is that people thought that god was angry at them for all of their sins so they would walk down streets while being whipped or whipping themselves. Another thought was that the Jewish people were responsible for the plague, angry Christians would even burn some of them alive. | Thoughts from the Time | They ofter burned jews for fun.
6: Infected Areas | The Black Plague infected many areas around the world. The main place the black plague infected was the middle ages, and mainly throughout Europe.But the Black Plague infected many other areas such as:Africa,Cairo,Florence, and China. China migrated three fourths of the country so that most people in China wouldn't die.

8: Artwork | The Plague had a very big impact on how people saw things, but also helped to create a new type of art. Some people were fascinated with death, and would portray it in many different ways. Some would make it beautiful, and some would create it as gory and disgusting as it would be in real life. Some pictures would be a combination of the two and give people a mix of emotions. | A picture of the black plague capturing a citizen.
