An in-depth analysis of pottery shards has revealed the "eye-watering" impact the Black Death had across rural medieval England.
Towns, villages and hamlets were ravaged by the peak of the plague between 1346 and 1351, and between 75 and 200 million people are said to have been killed across Europe and Asia during several centuries of the disease.
Now a series of maps has been released which reveal the "devastating" and "eye-watering" effect the disease had across the UK as populations fell.
