From Crash Course History: “Disease!”

Diseases, especially infectious ones, shaped human history to where it is today. But you don’t have to take my word for it…

I will be the first one to agree that diseases have shaped history all along. This video talks about diseases in a historical context, from the bubonic plague to the smallpox epidemics that wiped out so many native colonies in the Americas when the Europeans arrived. It’s about 12 minutes long, and it’s quite entertaining and educative.
