The Black Death may have been caused by giant Asian gerbils, not black rats

The Black Death may have been caused by giant Asian gerbils, not black rats | TJMS World History | Scoop.it
For years it is the humble black rat, Rattus rattus that has taken the blame for bringing the Black Death to Europe in the mid-14th century. However, a new study from Professor Nils […]

Why is it so important to know what animal actually transported the Black Death?  If scientists can better understand the conditions and how the disease was spread we see when the same patterns repeat and prevent outbreaks better.  

Even though Bubonic Plague is treatable with antibiotics today there are similar diseases that appear from time to time and better understanding leads to faster and more appropriate response.

WHAT A FIND? A well-known underwater explorer believes he's found the HOLY GRAIL OF SHIPWRECKS. Sitting on the ocean floor for more than 500 years just off the coast of Haiti — possibly Christopher Columbus' Santa Maria.

Among the wreckage, Clifford says he found a cannon of 15th century design, making it difficult for the weapon to come from anything but Columbus' fleet. (WATCH)

Let's watch to see what the experts say after they've had a chance to examine this wreck.

Do we need to preserve everything for the past or are there times that the future is more important than the past?  In many countries there is the constant struggle between historic relics and finds and needed infrastructure.  How do we balance the two needs?  Do we bulldoze over history to construct a modern future or do we preserve everything at the expense of modern needs?

What medieval Europe did with its teenagers

What medieval Europe did with its teenagers | TJMS World History | Scoop.it

"Today, there's often a perception that Asian children are given a hard time by their parents. But a few hundred years ago northern Europe took a particularly harsh line, sending children away to live and work in someone else's home. Not surprisingly, the children didn't always like it."


Via Seth Dixon

Young folks today may be surprised to learn that, had they been born a few hundred years ago in Medieval Europe, they might well be working for another family through their teenaged years.
