  2. Let’s Investigate the effectiveness of Feudalism… We can do this by following the steps of the GHPPA! Step 1: Identify the Problem Step 2: Gather Evidence Step 3: Determine the Causes Step 4: Evaluate the Policy

  3. Summary of Steps 1-3 of the GHPPA After the Roman Empire collapsed, Europe was divided into many small kingdoms ruled by different kings. This was the beginning of the Middle Ages and ranged from about 455 A.D. and continued until about 1559. During the Middle Ages societies were organized in a system called Feudalism. In this system, the people had no vote about anything. They had to obey and pay "overlords".

  4. Summary continued… • Three social classes existed during the Middle Ages. The Nobility, or upper class, controlled the lands and did all the fighting.

The serfs, or lower class, were peasants who lived on the manors and tilled the soil. (Retrieved from:
