Death By Numbers
One of the most dreaded diseases in early modern England was plague, which was present in the British Isles from 1348 until 1679. Government officials attempted to quantify the severity of various plague outbreaks and, starting in 1603, published London’s weekly mortality statistics in broadside series known as the Bills of Mortality. One of the major aims of the Death by Numbers project is to transcribe and publish the information in these bills in a dataset suitable for computational analysis.
