The Pestilence Tyme has been rated BEST by


A review of The Pestilence Tyme from TheMiddleAges.com

An award winning site that devotes its scope of study to 1348-1350. Beautifully rendered images throughout, concisely worded, and well fleshed, this site is worthy of the dedicated readings of hard-core researchers, but also usable by everyone from students to the merely curious. Well defined chapters inform the researcher of not only the facts and statistics, but also narrow in on more mundane aspects of the epidemics. A wonderful and well-rounded resource!


Letters to our Site

Dear Jim,

I am an 8th grade social studies teacher in Texas. My students have thoroughly immersed themselves in your book, The Pestilence Tyme. In an endeavor to foster creativity and higher level thinking skills, I enjoy getting as much information as I can over the net. This way I can encourage my students to read because it is high interest material. From this point, I then try to develop lessons which I can incorporate in relation to both content and skill. (I wish that each student could have his or her own computer. Our educators and the people instituting our programs in public education are so out of touch with what our youth need it is maddening.)

Thank you for the wonderful text. My students have looked forward to class each day to continue the story of what is almost unimaginable. Thank you.

AC Jack


Dear James,

I am a high school teacher at Paterson College in Australia. I am doing a unit on the middle ages with my year nine class. I request to use your superb web site for classroom teaching purposes. I must compliment you on a thoroughly researched and beautifully presented site. I can see why you have won so many awards with this. Thanks in advance.
