Historical Description

The ten biblical plagues refer to a series of catastrophes that, according to the biblical narrative, plagued the land of Egypt around the 13th century BC. There is no historical evidence for this story, which has been handed down in the Bible, even though this has been attempted by dating volcanic eruptions, which are assumed by several scientists to have been the original trigger for the plagues.
