The story of Britain immediately before, during and after the greatest catastrophe in human history — the Black Death. Challenging widely-accepted theories about the plague’s spread and long-term effects, the book promises to be the definitive account of Britain during this pandemic.

Nothing experienced in human history, before or since, eclipses the terror, tragedy and scale of the Black Death, the disease which killed millions of people in Medieval Europe. This book tells the story of Britain immediately before, during and after this catastrophe.
