My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

The dark, terror-filled years entered the Medieval villages and cities, causing people to be on the run. The years of the Black Death swiped the many nations across the globe. The whole villages were wiped off whether by the plague or the fleeing away villagers, hiding from the malady, while speeding it around in greater numbers.  The unknown, deadly plague took hold of many forms, driving people to the edges of fear.

Learn in these mini series of history by Henry Freeman the causes of the plague and the consequences.
