The Black Death Talk

At the Old Operating Theatre Museum today I gave a talk to a group of bright young children on the Black Death followed by a walk on the Cholera. The danger is to make the entire talk gloomy and to make the kids think the past was a terrible place full of stupid people, so I try to explain the difficulty of working out cause and effect, and determining efficacy of treatment - I end up exhorting them to study maths.
