Publisher Description

LET DAFOE TELL YOU HOW HE SURVIVED

“Having thus, as I have said, laid in a store of bread, butter, cheese, and beer, I took my friend and physician’s advice, and locked myself up, and my family, and resolved to suffer the hardship of living a few months without flesh-meat, rather than to purchase it at the hazard of our lives.”

History repeats itself

Learn what occurred in 1665 London,


How the plague arrived

How it propagated

What measures the local government took

How quarantines were enforced before there was GPS.

The effect on economic sectors

The effect on international travel and trade



And much more.
