Medieval Amazon: Plague to Pubs

This week on the Tipsy Timeline we talk about turning disaster into opportunity. When life hands you lemons, juice 'em and throw 'em into a stiff drink! When life hands you the bubonic plague, make...drinks? This week we discuss how England managed turn the tide and create a whole new culture in the post-plague kingdom. Find out all the details this week on the Tipsy Timeline.

We discuss how the Black Death caused massive population decline and its impact on workers rights, income, and free time. We discuss how these enterprising people turned this unprecedented disaster into a hallmark of English culture: pubs! Sources for this week's episode can be found at the following locations:
