    The History Channel is repeating their documentary on the Plague tonight. It was very good.

    If this doesn't put you in the Holiday spirit, nothing will.

    The UK sight has the website presentation that went with the original.

    Surprising how many villages disappeared due to black death and enclosure, there are four sites with a five mile radius from me, not that there is much to see above or below ground,
    but in some cases a church or a farm house remain.
    within my area is, Chaple Ascot, Hodnel, East End and Watergal.

    I'm going to have to come visit you some day Wolram. The historical sites in your area would be a dream to me.

    robin of bishops itchington, in the spring of 1348 you are an odorous Physician.

    Your knowledge of medicine saves you from the Black Death, as you bleed yourself profusely, and refuse to see any patients.

    Stuff and nonsense, i would never bleed myself.

    Ok, so we three survived, what a pleasant lot, a greedy "peasent", a lecherous nun, and an odorous physician.

    Yes i remember that one, your horse stumbled, the tip of you lance dug into the ground,
    the sudden stop catapulted you out of the saddle high in to the air, you landed head first ,the weight of the armour driving you waste deep in the ground.

    MIH of Alabama, in the spring of 1348 you are a foul-mouthed Serving wench.

    You survive the plague and marry the tavern-owner, whose wife conveniently suffers an agonising death from bubonic plague.
