Medieval Times By: Jack Torbey

Feudalism- the dominant social system in medieval Europe, in which the nobility held lands from the Crown in exchange for military service, and vassals were in turn tenants of the nobles, while the peasants were to live on their lord's land and give him homage, labor, and a share of the produce, notionally in exchange for military protection

Manor- a unit of land, originally a feudal lordship, consisting of a lord's demesne and lands rented to tenants

The people that lived in the manor were the serfs and Lords.

How the Society Groups are Interdependent: The society groups are interdependent because they all rely on each other for resources. For example, without serfs, the noblemen wouldn't have food. Without the noblemen, the knights and serfs wouldn't have land.

How does the Feudal System Affect Politics: The feudal system affects politics because it affects politics by how much power everyone has. If the feudal system was different the society could be because serfs might want to rule differently than the kings. Also, the religion could be different if it wasn't for popes.

How does the Feudal System Affect Social Structure: The feudal system affects social structure because everyone has their own role. For example, without the serfs, the noblemen wouldn't have food. WIthout the knights, the serfs wouldn't have protection.

How does the Feudal System Affect the Economy: The feudal system affects the economy because of religion. Without bishops or popes, the economy would have a different belief and think different things. Catholicism brings the economy closer together.
