The Culprit
4
Why so severe?
  • Pre-existing factors? No one knows!
  • 1315 to 1322 a catastrophic famine struck all of
    Northern Europecold?
  • Wheat, oats, hay and consequently livestock were
    all in short supply
  • Scarcity resulted in hunger and malnutrition
  • Human vulnerability to disease due to weakened
    immunity

5
How it went down
  • 1347, a fleet of trading ships from Genoa reached
    the port in Italy
  • By the time the fleet reached port, all the crew
    members were either infected or dead
  • Some ships were found grounded on shorelines,
    with no one aboard remaining alive
  • Looting of these lost ships also helped spread
    the disease
  • From there, the plague spread to Genoa and
    Venice by 1348
