TLDR for the BIGGEST killer: The black plague, which killed 50-60% of Europe's entire population. However the title was clearly just slapped on for youtube and not really what the video is about; the show actually tells the story of 3 specific people and what killed them. It looks at 3 medieval burial sites and shows you how an archeologist knows things like a person's status, age, health and living conditions just by looking at their bones. They give you a snapshot of 3 real people that lived and died in medieval times and what their life and death might have been like. Specific stories about individual people will always be way more interesting to me than blanket statements. You should totally watch the video, just not for the title.

Regarding the woman who had y pestis, I find it interesting that she and others were buried where there is a yew tree. Very ancient legends connect the yew with burial sites,some apparently going back thousands of years. Yews regenerate: where a branch touches the ground a new yew may spring up. Thus if the particular yew at this gravesite is not ancient itself, it might have sptung from successive regenerations of an ancient yew. In church graveyards often the yew and the original church graveyard would be south and/or west of the church itself. An ancient castle site (even motte and bailey) might have had a chapel or church itself that had its own yew-graced gravesite. Whoever buried this woman, who may have still understood that the yew was once sacred and associated with death and rebirth.either buried her near an extant yew, or planted one there. Perhaps it was still locally known that the yew was the site of a Christian sacred burial ground associated with the old castle. If the new churchyard was full, the old one might be the best spot. And yes, it is entirely possible that whomever enterred this woman in the 14th c.could have known this. After all I and many many people still do know that in 2022. ( In the 1600’s one bishop wished to make yews illegal at gravesites: apparently he failed. This is likely the period when the legend that Pontius Pilate had a yew upon his grave, and that witchcraft was associated with yews (which are poisonous to consume, but so are many many plants and even many pretty flowers.)

It would be interesting to know how long it took for natural forces to bury the entire battlefield, and the corpse's, with soil to a depth suitable for the land to be used for farming. In addition..... it would also be interesting to know how long it took for the people of the town (of which the battle was named) to start using the field for agriculture. I am sure that it produced high quality corps in VAST quantities because of the high "ORGANIC MATTER" in the soil.

I agree that would be really cool to know. I learned while researching fertilizers and mixing different kinds of soil that some of the most nutrient natural soils was found to be a massive burial ground from one of the deadlier plagues. 😬😳

@Kassie Fouts I can imagine! Tell me something if you happen to know. I grew up on a farm and have wondered for years how it is that fields that are fertilized with manure of whatever kind, how does it not end up in the crops even on a molecular level? Probably sounds like a laymen’s question to you, but is something I’ve always wondered about.
RPKelly 6 aylar önce
@Kelly’s Homemade Kitchen "Ash's to ash's... dust to dust" as the saying goes I guess. When you are returned to the ground and decompose, I expect the plants don't know the difference (or care) if you are a chemical fertilizer or a human being. It is my understanding that plants need the chemical nurturance from the soil (absorbed through their roots), in combination with photosynthesis from the sun, to feed itself. So essentially, every time you eat a veggie.... you are eating a little bit of everything that ever lived!

Isn't there a scripture in which Jesus says something along the lines of "there will always be poor among you"? Meaning that human greed, which leads to some people being left with very little or even nothing, will always exist until judgement day because of how flawed humanity is. I dunno, I thought that would be interesting to note, because whether or not there is a god or a next life, that statement remains true.

Casualty rates, this includes surviving wounded, for medieval warfare was 10-15%. There are certainly cases of routs and annihilation of whole units, but 8-9 of 10 soldiers survived most battles without serious injuries. Don't forget, this is WAY before antibiotics and modern surgical treatments, most would be saved with modern medicine! Edit: Don't think they fought like 19th and early 20th century armies lining up and pouring .90 cal lead slugs into each other. It was no easier to charge into spears then than it would be for us today!

Depends yes in fighting they survived but come back no. While the fight was going on not many died but when one of the army routed that slaughter just like they said not a lot of bodies on battlefield but than in one direction lots of evidence of the battle until there was no one else to kill because they got away or were killed... I mean there are battles where bodies pilled up during battle like Agincourt and even before that Romans and Alexander were good at using horses to cut the lines while still in battle but yeah shield wall vs shield wall not that many dead but if you managed to flank with horses o boy like tank driving into a line of solders...

@Blaze Somun Yes, there have been all sorts of crazy battles and campaigns. Still, when we include ALL the ones you mentioned and average it out 5-15% of a pre gunpowder army would be killed or wounded in a battle. That's just what the analysis tells us overall, I'm not sure at all why you object.

Blaze Somun Aylar önce
@Warp DriveBy I don't object I just said that if you count routing as a battle (I do) than number is way way way higher than 5-15% its more like 30-35%

*Someone* must have been left in Masterby, or who buried the bodies and put up the cross? 21:23 I bet whoever lost his spanner out in the field was annoyed to find it was gone! And do they scan again after they took the nails out to make sure that there isn't anything else hidden under the nail? The Lady of Tadcaster might have been the midwife, i.e., a more important member of the community. That would explain why she was buried in a single grave. 1:36:55 The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, and Pestilence are three, and the fourth is a figure with a bow and crown, interpreted variously by different scholars. Perhaps it shows the oligarchy or the wealthy elite that has taken over the world. They're certainly killing enough people with sanctions and austerity.

Is not the 4th Horseman Death? I assumed that is why he wears a crown. Because he rules over all. Obviously during an apocalyptic event everyone would die, so Death would be all present, and in any event nobody escapes him, so he would be supreme over all. He's the main event, so to speak lol

There was a principle in almost all of recorded history where if a city stood up to an attacking army, once the army breeches the walls and defeats said city; The attacking army is given three days in which they raped who they wanted, enslaved who they wanted, stole anything that they wanted, and destroyed anything they wanted. Then on the morning of day three they would pack their slaves and property up, and march back home a rich man. That is why young men wanted to join armies in the first place, to take place in this three day orgy of violence and wealth! Wild times, indeed, which basically took place over our entire human existence as masters of agriculture. East Asian cultures who didn't adhere to such rules would often kill all men of age, take the women and children as slaves, and burn the entire city to the ground after it was looted - there was no three day limit to their conquering orgy.

@jabadaba du Yeah it’s wild to think about .. people setting de quorum for conquering cities, because they knew they could be conquered next and didn’t want their entire city wiped off the map either, so three days of them looting the “wealthy neighborhoods” seemed like a good trade-off from everyone’s viewpoint.

@Rob Vollat Every story has two sides. I believe in not being harmful to society. Although I could list some examples of hatred, but this does not give me satisfaction. I forgive, I don't forget, I learn and I move on... Being violent is the easiest way in the beginning. Over the years, you realize that this is not the solution. However, when you start thinking about it in the old age and when conscience begins to come to the fore, then you seek comfort in people. When you feel strong, ask yourself if you really need it. That's when the right combination of strength and humanity is born in a person. A bit out of context, but on the subject of human mentality.

The demeaning narrative tone, and 'tisk, tisk' that surfaces at times, in the discussion of the ancient attitudes towards disease in this piece, comes close to overshadowing the clinical presentation of the diseases. Instead of sneers, we should be exhibiting pity for the people caught up in the mores' of their era and their very limited knowledge. Presentism, applying today's moral and ethical judgements, to people of other eras needs to be curbed.

Contents Differ

@Chad Ettwein No. No, that's absolutely wrong. Decimation literally means that one tenth died. Decimation was a draconian punishment used by the Romans against their units or even legions for severe crimes. They would pick one soldier out of every ten, and force nine of his comrades to beat him to death. Aside from losing a tenth of their fighting force, the unit would suffer greatly in cohesion and morale. The unit might indeed go on to suffer great losses or annihilation in combat after that. But, the decimation was simply the "removal" of one-tenth the soldiers.

I always say I would have made certain I was in a convent in a very out of the way geographical location at a young age, so as to remove the possibility of being forced to marry to survive, the certainty of being impregnated, have to give birth, put myself at risk of syphilis and various other STD's, and protect myself further against the possibility of rape by living somewhere undesirable to conquer or pillage. Preferably a convent in which we can grow decent food and we can make our own clothing, but there isn'ta ton of money involved, as I fear that would draw authorative male religious figures, and you can't trust any of them. En absentia male bishops and so forth having no interest in visiting. A nunnery or convent on an island might be good. That seems to me the only way to avoid most of the things i would fear the most.
