The term plague cross can refer to either a mark placed on a building occupied by victims of plague; or a permanent structure erected, either to enable plague sufferers to trade while minimising the risk of contagion, or to commemorate past victims of the disease. A wide variety of forms of plague cross existed in Britain and elsewhere in Europe, until plague largely disappeared by the eighteenth century.
