In the early 1300's, there was a food shortage. The food shortage made many poor people starve, because food was getting a lot more expensive because of the shortage. After the shortage, rats had gotten bit by fleas, and the rats were full of diseases. The fleas bit people, giving them disease. The disease killed many people, and it wiped out most of the population. I thought it was crazy how so many people died from fleas getting diseases from rats, and then having the fleas bite the people, and how it killed so many people. I wonder what the people were thinking, like, where did the disease come from, and what can we do?
