Summary: It starts like the common cold. Then comes fever, baseball-sized black swellings on the neck, and coughing up blood. Few of those infected live more than two days, and in the three years since it first struck in 1437, almost half of Europe's population had died. This A and E Special begins at the rat-infested ships that brought the bubonic plague as it tells the story of the Black Death-a scourge that penetrated peasant huts and the papal palace alike. Entries from diaries and journals offer up the actual words of plague victims, painting a livid portrait of suffering and fear
