Look at the change in population in Europe from 1300 to 1400, during the Black Death epidemic. Use a calculator to determine the percentage that the population declined between those two centuries. To get the answer, you need to subtract the population between the two centuries. Then, divide this difference in the population with the population in the year 1300. Finally, multiply by 100 to get the decline in percentage. Next, by using the same formula noted above, calculate the percentage that the population dropped in the Americas from 1500 to 1600, during the Columbian Exchange era. Which region of the world experienced a greater population decline? Based on this fact, what can you infer about the spread of disease because of global trade in Europe compared to the Americas?

    30 - 60% of the European population died because of the Black Death epidemic.


    The population fell a lot due to the black plague, in addition to the subsequent Hundred Years War that devastated France, which was one of the many wars that happened in the period of anarchy and chaos that came into the world after the plague, which led to the need to form unified states over time. It is estimated that 30 - 60 % of the European population died during the Black Death epidemic.
