"Researchers now have a clearer picture of the impact of the first plague pandemic, the Justinianic Plague, which lasted from about 541-750 CE.

"Led by researchers at the University of Maryland's National-Socio Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), the international team of scholars found that the plague's effects may have been exaggerated.

"They examined diverse datasets, but found no concrete effects they could conclusively attribute to the plague."

Yersina pestis in all it's forms have been with the Indo-Europeans since they first developed on the Pontic Caspian Steppe.

It might of been the driver for the migration of IE groups and could have caused the serious population decline among European Farmers during the IE migrations.
