For this paper, I will supply you with a video and several readings that you will be expected to integrate into your essay (see below). You will also utilize the additional substantive source that you submitted in Week 6. The paper will be double-spaced, 12pt. font and will be a minimum of 1500 words (with that said, I am looking for quality over quantity!). As in the substantive source assignment, you will use Chicago Style citation. I would prefer Author-Date format, but you may use Notes-Bibliography format as well. In this paper, you will be expected to consider the factors that allowed for the onset and spread of the disease in the 14th century, the impact on society (religious, cultural, and economic), and the lasting impact/legacy of the Black Death. 1. Watch: Watch the YouTube video “Secrets of the Black Death” Secrets of the Black Death – by Nature Video 2. Read the following: http://www.vlib.us/medieval/lectures/black_death.html (Links to an external site.)“The Great Famine and the Black Death” http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/plague.htm (Links to an external site.) Eyewitness to History – The Black Death For additional context – see: History Guide – Satan Triumphant – http://www.historyguide.org/ancient/lecture29b.html (Links to an external site.) and In the Wake of the Black Death – http://www.historyguide.org/ancient/lecture30b.html (Links to an external site.) 4. Reflect: In this paper, you will be expected to consider the factors that allowed for the onset and spread of the disease in the 14th century, the impact on society (religious, cultural, and economic), and the lasting impact/legacy of the Black Death. You will be expected to integrate both the assigned sources and the substantive source you selected in your paper. This is the assignment that I submitted in week 6: My source on the Black Death assignment is a primary source from Spartacus Educational. The article is Contemporary Accounts of the Black Death (Classroom Activity). This source speaks about the plague and how it reached Europe in the 14th Century. The article explains the symptoms of the plague and the percentage of deaths that affected the population. There are different sources as well as a timeline regarding the time of this horrific plague that killed many people. It also gives questions at the end for students to answer that would reflect on the articles reading. This article can be very useful because it has so much important information and it gives details on how the plague affected the population in Europe as well as their religion. Another primary source that I found was an Academic Journal from a scholarly source from EBSCOhost. The article is called, The Archaeology of the Peasant Land Market in Pre-Plague England c ad 1290–1350: A Way Forward by Platt Colin. This article gives history of the Black Death Pandemic Plague during the years of 1349-1351 in Europe. It also is about Archaeologists not just knowing the about the plague and climate but about the pre-plague in England and post-plague years. I think this is important to know the history before it occurred and to what led to the plague as well as to what happened after the fact. I think this is important to research because it was one of the greatest catastrophes in history.
