The Black Death killed between 25 and 75 million people in Europe alone in just over five years! This terrifying outbreak of the plague killed roughly 1/3 of the entire world’s population, dropping it from an estimated 450 million down to around 350 million. It's been labeled by various historians as The Greatest Catastrophe Ever. And we explore it's spread, how it killed you, who it killed, how it was treated (so crazy), and much more on a wild medieval ride today on Timesuck!
