The Black Death, Paperback Book


This colourfully illustrated book recalls the history, the horrors, and the heroism encountered when a mysterious plague struck Britain in 1348-49.

With one third of the population wiped out by a disease so swift that neither prayer nor potions could check its progress, this was indeed catastrophe on a nationwide scale which shook the very foundations of feudal society.

Look out for more Pitkin Guides on the very best of British history, heritage and travel.
