Episode 14: The Black Death - Part 2

Templar curses, corpse-eating pigs, and waking up to a house full of death.  We rejoin our Genoese heroes as they flee Caffa for the safety of home... coughing blood all the way.  Their twelve galleys lit the fires that would consume 14th century Europe, resulting in a staggering death toll.  It's amazing what a bacterium can do with the help of rodents and a filthy continent.  Yersinia pestis: The Little Bug That Could.
