How do historical conditions influence our health? How does health change history? The After the Plague Project investigates these questions by exploring health in medieval England (400-1500).
The most significant event during this period is the infamous Black Death (the plague epidemic of 1347-51), which killed 30% to 60% of Europe’s population. This project focusses on one medieval archaeological site in Cambridge, and the people who were buried there.
