Product description


"This remarkable, ambitious book by a new, young historian is positive about the new society that survived disaster" (The Times)

"Benedict Gummer's highly impressive book charts the subsequent spread of the disease in meticulous and terrible detail" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A rich, thoughtful and utterly riveting historical narrative... A treasure chest of detail" (Daily Telegraph)

"A fearsomely ambitious book from an exciting new writer... A compelling and sobering picture of a world - peopled with kings, soldiers, bishops, peasants - that is both remote and familiar" (Simon Russel Beale)

"The enormous value of Gummer's book, for all its apparent narrowness of focus, is that it concentrates attention on the plague as an episode in the Hundred Years War and the new mercantilism that was opening up northern seas and nations to world trade - (a) fine book" (Herald)

Book Description

The definitive account of the Black Death in the British Isles.
