The Great Plague

Evelyn Lord

Yale University Press

Autumn in Cambridge was usually an exciting and busy time with a series of processions, meetings, and feasts. In 1665, there were no processions or civic feasting, and the university was closed because of the plague. People in Cambridge went about their daily lives with hopes that when the summer heat died down, the plague would abate. The plague, however, quietly spread like wildfire.
