The Mystery of the Black Death

Considered as one of the most devastating pandemic that swept across 14th century Europe, The Black Death nearly wiped out half of Europe’s population. The disease, which was caused by a bacterium called Yersinia pestis, developed into several forms of plague, killing more than 200 million in its path.

The Black Death is a subject of a 2003 TV program aired in PBS as part of the Secrets of the Dead series. Hosted by actor Liev Schreiber, the series puts the focus on the aftermath of The Black Death and the misery as to why certain individuals of that era seemed to be immune to the plague.
