Livingstone Mausoleum detail
Tombstone for a victim of the pestilence which began in 1644 and swept across Scotland for the next four years. According to the historian Christopher Smout, it was probably typhus, spread by lice and "carried to all parts of the country by the marching and counter-marching armies of the Covenant and Montrose and by the refugees fleeing from them". He gives the mortality for Leith as 2421, which was just over half the population.
