The classical "Black Death" first struck Europe in 1348-53, though plague had afflicted at least Mediterranean Europe inn 541-43 and 590-91, and may have recurred in the 7th century. Plague returned repeatedly until the 17th-18th centuries, with the last great epidemic in England in 1665, in France in 1720 and in Russia in 1771. A last pandemic spread through southern China in 1894 and then to India and around the world, though deaths this time were far fewer, at least outside Asia.
