The Black Death. From Sicily in 1347, the plague spread rapidly up the leg of Italy into Europe, reaching England in June 1348, Norway in 1349, and Russia in 1351.  It is estimated that in the southern countries such as  Italy, where it raged for four consecutive years, the plague killed  three-quarters of the entire population, while in the northern  countries such as Britain, it killed about one quarter.  In all,  Bubonic Plague may have killed as many as 100 million people.
