One of the main experiences which distinguishes the Tudor and Stuart period from the modern age is that its people suffered regularly from famine and devastating epidemic disease. This talk looks at the way in which historians can study these killers and their effects, and how they were perceived and experienced at the time. It also tackles directly the question of when and how they were finally brought to an end.
