We present the ramifications of the Black Plague using ArcGis Story maps. Using this source enables us to visually depict our project, allowing it to be easier to consume. To begin, we discuss how the plague originated, and the path of devastation it took around Europe, different regions were affected by the plague at different times. Following that our website describes the toll taken on the population and reflect which areas of Europe were hurt the most. To conclude we discuss the resilience of the population, and the consequences both long and short term that affected life in the 14th century.
