15 episodes narrated by a historian. Its backed up by maps showing the spread. A fascinating explanation of the spread and causes of the plague. Its a complete view of what life was like from 1346 to 1365. It kept me interested all the way through.
It's on prime.

One of the most tragic events in human history. Only a nuclear holocaust could be more devastating. If the plague happened today, or even a worldwide Ebola pandemic, then we would probably be able to contain it the same way quarantining is working for covid.
