I'm up early on this bright and sunny morning, no rain, so we can go outside. I've got a video simmering which will be uploaded to yooootoooob later. In the meantime I've come across this really good article about the Plague at Eyam in Derbyshire. For those who are struggling to curb their activities by staying closer to home, read it because it is about an important event in history which we can all learn from. The people of Eyam self isolated the whole village so they could contain the disease and stop it spreading any further. They saved many lives by doing this. The story is so relevant today as we find ourselves in a similar situation.
The plague at Eyam, link.
I went to Eyam in 2011, and stayed in the Youth Hostel. Here is the link to the blog post. There is also a short video on there about the story of the Plague. You may be sick of reading anything about the Coronavirus now, but I think this look back into history is something we need to learn about.
Catch ya later. ilona
