The black death swept through Europe, leaving no country untouched, before it reached England. This is a German Pestblatt carried to protect the owner from pestilence. The Black Death (1340-1400) was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people and peaking in Europe in the years 1348-50. A pandemic is an epidemic of infectious disease that has spread through human populations across a large region (multiple continents, or even worldwide).
