Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fresh approach to the history of the Black Death, John Hatcher, a world-renowned scholar of the Middle Ages, recreates everyday life in a mid-fourteenth century rural English village. By focusing on the experiences of ordinary villagers as they lived—and died—during the Black Death (1345–50 AD), Hatcher vividly places the reader directly into those tumultuous years and describes in fascinating detail the day-to-day existence of people struggling with the tragic effects of the plague. Dramatic scenes portray how contemporaries must have experienced and thought about the momentous events—and how they tried to make sense of it all.

Synopsis:

From a leading expert comes an original and compelling account of the Black Death's devastation on a small English village during the 14th century. By focusing on the experiences of ordinary people, Hatcher vividly places the reader directly inside those tumultuous times.

Interesting and informative history of the Black Death presented as a fictional town populated by real people and alternating with non-fiction section for an overview of the day to day life with the coming of the plague and the socio-economic upheaval caused by it.
