Ch5 The Great Plague

Post by dewaltdisney »

I have been watching the three episodes in this series this week reexamining The Great Plague in 1665 and it has rewritten the history of the event I was taught at school. It is a fascinating series and I would recommend watching it. Although it was a bacterial infection rather than a viral pandemic that we have now it is amazing the parallels with today and the innovations that were developed in the time to deal with it. The biggest myth taught was that the Great Fire of London finished it but it was already contained by then.
