Episode Summary

EDIT
The Plague
AIRED:
It began like the common cold. Then fever, baseball-sized black swellings on the neck, coughing of blood. Few lived more than two days. The year: 1347. It was history's worst biological disaster and almost half of Europe's population died within three years. Visit the plague ships' rat-infested holds, witness the terror that swept through the towns, and walk with the religious flagellants. Hear the actual words of the victims, taken from diaries and journals. From the Pope's palace to the humble huts of Medieval peasants, watch as people live and die in the unforgiving grip of fear and death.moreless
