Disaster Recovery: New Evidence for the Impact of the Black Death

Ordinary Meeting of Fellows (Fellows and Guests Only)

Disaster Recovery: New Evidence for the Impact of the Black Death

Lecture by Carenza Lewis, FSA

Professor Lewis will be presenting new archaeological evidence for the impact of the demographic crisis of the 14th century (including the Black Death) on eastern England. This research uses pottery data from more than 2,000 test pits not only to measure quantum changes in settlement and population but also to map this impact at a range of scales from individual streets to entire regions.  Importantly, this is an approach which can be applied anywhere to source comparable data, potentially allowing the impact of this crisis to be reconstructed across Europe and beyond.
