Typhoid Fever - Giant Microbe

Salmonella Typhi.  Around 430–424 BC a devastating plague, which many believe to have been typhoid fever, killed one third of the population of Athens, including their leader Pericles. The balance of power shifted from Athens to Sparta, ending the Golden Age of Pericles that had marked Athenian dominance in the Greek ancient world. Ancient historian Thucydides also contracted the disease, but survived to write about it.Our cuddly Giant Microbes are supplied with an information sheet and a magnified image of the actual bug described (pictured).
