The first recorded appearance of the plague in Europe was at Messina, Sicily in October of 1347. It arrived with trading ships that likely came from the Black Sea, past Constantinople and through the Mediterranean. This was a standard trade route that brought to Europeans goods which were carried overland to the Black Sea from as far away as China.
