This is a great topic!

If you need this as an answer, think in terms of the topics you might have studied so far about the Middle Ages.

My favourites are:

  • Feudalism (societal structures)
  • Manorialism
  • the Black Death
  • the Crusades
  • Crime and Punishment
  • the Church
  • Trade
  • Food
  • Artisans' Guilds

You could begin with "when" questions. (Like, "When [in what era] was the punishment for robbery a day or night in the stocks?" or "When [in what era] did the Black Death occur?")

You might also make your questions a little more "smart" sounding by combining a few of the topics and asking what they have in common, like "What do knights, barons, serfs, archbishops, cathedrals and pottage have in common?"
