Black Death Study Guide

  1. 1. Black Plague study guide Ch.2 “They are monsters not men.” By Ben Massey
  2. 2. What Made the Tarabagan a good plague transferor? Q1 Ch. 2 <ul><li>Tarabagans were autopsied by Russian scientists during the Cold War and it was found that they had been host to a kind of microscopic worm that had given their victims this so called “plague.” Learning about this inspired a scientist to compare the worms to the plague that had killed off many cities during the Renaissance and he discovered that the worms were in fact Y. pestis and he also discovered that the Y. pestis that circulates among the tarabagans is the “most virulent in the world” and that what they carried was the only form of the Y. pestis in rodents that was pneumotropic and super lethal. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How can a human tell if a Tarabagan is infected with Y. pestis Q2 Ch. 2 <ul><li>A human can tell if a Tarabagan is infected with Y. pestis by looking at the way it walks. If a Tarabagan has a shuddery movement and is bleeding from the mouth, and vomiting blood it is infected. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What were the various ways the plague could be transferred to humans, and from human to human? Q3 Ch.2 <ul><li>The plague could be transferred by a flea; if a flea jumped off an infected rodent and landed on a human that would spread the bubonic version of the plague. The pneumonic version of the plague could be spread from person to person by bodily fluids like spit, and blood. This form of the plague is much more deadly. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What can cause a spike in rodent populations? Q4 Ch. 2 <ul><li>The rodent population can rise when a unusual environmental event happens, like a “mini ice age.” This may force the rats (and other rodents) into cities where the conditions are better and the rat population is free to rise. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Black Plague study guide Ch. 3 “The Day Before the Day of the Dead.” By Ben Massey
  7. 7. What was the second major military development in the 1400s? Q1 Ch. 3 <ul><li>The Chevauchee was the second major military development in the 1400s. It was created to resolve the great military dilemma of the age; How does an army break a siege? The answer is to focus all attacks on the civilians and the attacking army will be forced to help them, then the defending army is able to defend the castle and make repairs to the castle or other buildings, and strengthen their defenses. </li></ul>
  8. 8. How can war be an ideal source for plague to strike? Q2 Ch. 3 <ul><li>Stress and combat stress weakens the immune system, which in large wars was common, the men were also filthy and that attracted larger concentrations of rats and fleas. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How can hygiene be a major factor in disease spread? Q3 Ch. 2 <ul><li>Personal hygiene can be a major factor in disease spread. For instance, if you are not clean you have a much greater chance of rodents living in close proximity to you, and to fleas being attracted to the filth. Bacteria also grows rapidly in unsanitary situations. </li></ul>
  10. 10. What is a pandemic? Q4 Ch. 3 <ul><li>A pandemic is a catastrophic outbreak of infectious disease; including the Black Death. Three times in recorded history the plague has gotten to the level of a pandemic. </li></ul>
