Inhaltsangabe: In this intimate history of the extraordinary Black Plague pandemic that swept through the British Isles in 1665, Evelyn Lord focuses on the plague’s effects on smaller towns, where every death was a singular blow affecting the entire community. Lord’s fascinating reconstruction of life during plague times presents the personal experiences of a wide range of individuals, from historical notables Samuel Pepys and Isaac Newton to common folk who tilled the land and ran the shops. She brings this dark era to vivid life through stories of loss and survival from those who grieved, those who fled, and those who hid to await their fate.
About the Author: Evelyn Lord is Emeritus Fellow, Wolfson College, Cambridge. Her previous books include The Hellfire Clubs and The Knights Templar in Britain. She lives in Cambridge, UK.
