    The very low counts for the supposed population of the city.

      I'm surprised it's only got seven murders.

      It was around 200K at the time. I'm not going to sum that up, but that seems about right for the era and the accuracy they had available to them.

        I suppose it also depends on where "London" ends and neighboring towns begin. The boundary of "London" was a lot smaller back then.

          They were building up more than over at the time; London only expanded out after WW1, and even then not to the degree of the post-WW2 expansion. London basically grew to be bigger than Beijing entirely through the 18th and 19th centuries. Before that it was big, but you have to go to the post-Restoration for where it really started to get huge.

        >seven murders
        Perhaps murders were more difficult to prove in 1632. Murderers could also easily dispose of the body easier back then also.

          The more that I look into it and think about it the more it actually makes sense. Intentional homicide rates aren't as high as we think they are; 7 murders at that time lands as being under 3.5 per 100K, which is about normal for a country with guns that still has a large amount of murders. It's just not Brazil-tier.

          The reason we think it gets so high is because we're seeing all murders in all countries through the advent of the internet, spree killings, and even just the end result of organized crime and gang wars essentially being allowed in large parts of cities.

      Never heard of canker sores? Those were deadly back then.

        I have one right now, accidentally bit myself while eating and it formed a few days later. It stings like a b***h but I didn't think it could ever be deadly. How does it cause death? Could it get infected and kill you that way or something?

          Precisely. Infections were not fun to get in a pre-antibiotics age, infections of the mouth can quickly lead to sepsis.

      Planet struck was an explanation for sudden death also.

        This and health/safety regulations. They used to stuff families in shoddy apartments like sardines which were a fire hazard and disease was rampant, and during the initial industrial revolution you'd get a nice dose of smog in the morning and chemicals in your well water

    rising of the lights did 98 wienerneys get raptured circa 1632

      Rising of the lights refers to a sensation of fullness in the upper chest and throat. Lights was a popular name for lungs. It was sometimes related to mother, an old name for uterus or rising of the mother.
