In the wake of black death: scientists found out from where plague — RT in Russian came to Europe

The causative agent of plague Yersinia pestis got into Europe from the territory of modern Moldova, Ukraine and Romania. The international group of scientists by results of a research of the human remains found in the west of Sweden came to such conclusion. It became clear that the strain of a plague bacillus found by experts — the most ancient of all nowadays known, its age — about 5.7 thousand years. Active distribution of a bacterium began in the Neolithic era — along with rapid development of commercial relations and growth of population in the region. This fact allowed to refute the theory existing earlier according to which black death came to Europe together with nomads from steppes of Eurasia about 5 thousand years ago.
