Great Sources for Information:
Your paper on the Middle Ages will have
three sub-topics: feudalism and two
choices from this list.
To make it easier for you to put a copy of each source into your Google drive for note taking, I've already converted these sites into Google docs. When you choose your sub-topics, look at the numbers and find their corresponding files here. Make a copy and put it in your 'research' folder and take notes on that copy.
