    The Black Plague (a.k.a. the Black Death) that occurred in Europe in the 1300’s was one of the most devastating pestilence outbreaks in human history. Within only a few years, about 1/3 of Europe’s population was killed by the sickness. The disease supposedly had originally come from India via rats that had stowed aboard cargo ship that travelled to Europe. The disease was highly contagious and caused black swellings of the neck and joints, and black blister-like “bubos” that formed on the skin, and resulted in death a few days after exposure.
