I loves maps.

Can you link?



I could scan the map in but there would be a copyright issue. However, this from the web is similar but not as colorful.

American Scientist November-December 2014
Perspectives
The Bright Side of the Black Death
Research at the University of Pennsylvania compared skeletons in known plague graveyards with ones from graveyards not used for plague victims. The study notes that plague victims were generally "frailer", a term used to connote various physical infirmities. Post-plague skeletons averaged an older age at death than pre-plague bodies, suggestion the plague had acted as an agent of natural selection. In Rumania, meanwhile, geneticists compared DNA from ethnic Romanians, Rroma (gypsies) and Gujaratis (believed to be the ancestral home of the Rroma). The Romanians and Rroma shared genes involved in recognizing pathogens that the Gujaratis (from an area never subjected to the plague) did not have.
