Yo mentioned in this episode (108) that there were some Italian chroniclers who talked about the Black Death. Can you tell me who they were and how you gained access to their accounts?

The History of England

The one most quoted by Historians is Giovanni Boccaccio. There are some great online sites that provide a wealth of resources - where I have found the time, I have linked to them from my blog. Here's a direct link to the one I've found most useful, but also check out my other links

Cool. I had no idea you could find this stuff online. Thanks. Am really enjoying the podcast too although just discovered it months ago and am still trying to catch up.
