Can You Imagine?

Sorry - a short and gruesome one - I'm tired from looking at houses today.

Day 33: From 1347 to 1348, three out of every four people in Sienna and Florence in Italy died of the Black Death.

Hi Jo,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your day 33 post... I once did a huge school report on the Black Death. Very interesting how it has affected our culture - from Ring Around the Rosie to fear of wolves. Thank goodness we live at a time that is a lot more knowedgeable about disease!
