The disease was called the Black Death because one of the symptoms produced a blackening of the skin around the swellings.

The Black Death was spread by fleas that were carried by rats or other small rodents.

Nearly one third of the population died - about 200 million people in Europe.

7500 victims of the disease were dying every day.
