Still image from Timeblazers: The Great Stink

Timeblazers Sam and Jen look back at the squalid ways of old. For thousands of years people dumped garbage wherever they liked; food scraps were simply tossed onto the floor; and, in medieval times, garbage and human waste went right into the castle moat. All that garbage attracted the rats, which, in turn, spread a terrible disease called The Plague, The Black Death, or the Bubonic Plague.
