A very good course with some interesting insights. The call out to the Reformation was particularly insightful. It was enjoyable to hear that perhaps earthquakes *were* associated with the plague. The discussion of how different communities reacted or adapted was good. The discussion on sanitation and on Poland was was fascinating. This would be five stars but was a tad repetitive at times. I use the replay button, so the second time through a topic can create impatience for more new and interesting stuff! The Black Death also represents a capstone of the Middle Ages, so this is a important series not only for epidemiology and social implications, but also for intuition of the time period. Very much appreciated this course.
