Google Earth Plug-in: Plague Pit

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The black death first arrived in Aberdeen in 1350. Three hundred years later, in 1646, a quarter of the population was killed by the plague.
The magistrates of Aberdeen in 1585 even set up three gibbets to try to save the city.
"that in case any infected person arrive or repair by sea or land to this Burgh, or in case any indweller of this Burgh receive, house or harbour, or give meat or drink to the infected person or persons, the man be hanged and the woman drowned".
Most of the plague victims were buried in a pit here.
