This book is ideal for school project work or for those who want an 'at-a-glance' overview of The Great Plague. Complete with descriptions of the key events of the plague, it explains how it started and spread, how it affected its victims and how London was affected during the outbreak. An ideal topic for study of an aspect of British history that extends pupil's chronological knowledge at KS2. The timeline, glossary and clearly-headed spreads make it easy to refer to essential dates, facts and personalities. Maps, contemporary paintings and pictures of artefacts all help bring the topic to life.
