London skeletons reveal secrets of the Black Death

London skeletons reveal secrets of the Black Death | Plague on both your houses | Scoop.it

You can learn a lot from a tooth.


Molars taken from skeletons unearthed by work on a new London railway line are revealing secrets of the medieval Black Death — and of its victims.


Don Walker, an osteologist with the Museum of London, outlined the biography of one man whose ancient bones were found by construction workers under London’s Charterhouse Square: He was breast-fed as a baby, moved to London from another part of England, had bad tooth decay in childhood, grew up to work as a laborer, and died in early adulthood from the bubonic plague that ravaged Europe in the 14th century.


The poor man’s life was nasty, brutish and short, but his afterlife is long and illuminating.


“It’s fantastic we can look in such detail at an individual who died 600 years ago,” Walker said. “It’s incredible, really.”


To test their theory, scientists took one tooth from each of 12 skeletons, then extracted DNA from the teeth. They announced Sunday that tests had found the presence of the plague bacterium, Yersinia pestis, in several of the teeth, meaning the individuals had been exposed to — and likely died from — the Black Death.

ORB: The Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies | Plague on both your houses | Scoop.it

The Black Death serves as a convenient divider between the earlier and later Middle Ages. The Black Death did not cause the crisis, for evidence of the changes can be seen well before 1347. But the plague highlighted problems and added new ones.

Library Staff's insight:

This article talks about the arrival of the plague, and includes descriptions of its impact on humans, medical measures taken, the flagellants,  and the effects of the economic and cultural disruption to everyday life.
