Astrophe Against a backdrop of empty homes half built cathedrals and pestilence saturated cities we see communities gripped by unimaginable fear shock and paranoia By the time it completed its pestilential journey through the British Isles in 1350 the Black Death. This isn t an entirely comprehensive overview of the plague in Britain it doesn t cover the later epidemic of the 17th century for example preferring to concentrate on the first and most devastating outbreak in the 14th centuryThis book s particular strength is in depicting what Britain was like before the plague and how much of an impact the disease had on the population levels economics political structure even on architecture and literature It s incredibly detailed tracing the development of plague throughout the country although records exist in most detail in England for obvious reasons But he doesn t ignore Wales Ireland or Scotland even though there isn t as much evidence to demonstrate the impact of the plague in these partsGummer particularly suceeds in painting a picture of what life must have been like for those left behind It s difficult for us now to imagine what it must have been like to live in a country where almost a third of the population died in little than a year abandoned villages empty roads overgrown fields livestock roaming and untended

    This is a pretty complete account of the Black Death as it swept across the British Isles what it was and what it was afterIt does a fair job of revealing the human story and conseuences of the plague But also the resilience of them how they came back and how the institutions held up Even to the point where some working conditions improved and entrepreneurship was revitalized
