This is the original Watercolour painting by Jack Keay.

Just as the Tartar's thought that they were sure to win the siege of Kaffa, Abyssinia in 1346, their troops were devastated by an outbreak of the Plague. The bodies were catapulted into the town and although they were thrown into the sea by the Christian defenders some men became infected.

They were shipped to Genoa and a year later a French sailor who had been infected landed in Britain.
