The Black Death of 1348-9 is the greatest catastrophe in human history, but historians have long debated its short-term and long-term impact. This lecture is based on the Ford lectures of 2019 at Oxford University, and analyses the latest research to assess the place of plague in the history of England.

Professor Mark Bailey is Professor of Late Medieval History at the University of East Anglia, and High Master of St Paul’s School, London. His research interests are the economic and social history of England between 1200 and 1500. He is the James Ford Lecturer in British History at Oxford University (elect) for 2019. He has written seven books and published a number of academic articles on the economy and society of medieval England. His most recent book is The Decline of Serfdom in late medieval England: from bondage to freedom.
