Black Death  

Towards the end of the Middle Ages there appeared the Black Death, also known as the Black Plague. This piece is a reference to health and how it can affect humankind. The Black Plague was one of the most destructive pandemics in the history of humankind. The total human casualties are estimated between 75 and 100 million dead throughout Europe and Asia. In Europe, specifically, this pandemic reduced the total population by one third in just five years (1347 – 1353).
