    The Black Death is the name most commonly given to the pandemic of bubonic plague that ravaged the medieval world in the late 1340s. From Central Asia the plague swept through Europe, leaving millions of dead in its wake. Between a quarter and a third of Europe's population died. In England the population fell from nearly six million to just over three million. The Black Death was the greatest demographic disaster in European history.

    Few people lack confidence all the time, and many people are more confident with friends, or when practising a skill they know, such as working on a computer or cooking a meal. Yet, too often, these skills of confidence in everyday contexts may be dismissed as "that's nothing" or "that doesn't count" precisely because they are so familiar.

    Death is the last taboo in our society. While we are fully aware of death on a social level, for example seeing disasters and dramatized killings on television, we are increasingly shy about death on a personal level. Off the screen few of us will have witnessed a death or seen a corpse. Death has become frightening and unfamiliar. But, as medical science becomes ever more sophisticated, death is demanding attention as we live longer and our deaths become more protracted.
