Trevor Mr. H HIS 155 10 October 2014 Effects of The Black Death-Analysis Paper The Black Death was a pandemic disaster that affected all aspects of life in the Middle Ages of Europe. Depopulation and shortage of labor hastened changes already inherent in the rural economy; the substitution of wages for labor services was accelerated, and social stratification became less rigid.

The first thing that will come to most of our minds while thinking about human predators is animalistic type predators; however, we seem to forget that there is a much smaller and deadlier predator that awaits us: micro-organisms. Micro-organisms that are very much capable of causing diseases that can kill the human race.
