SOURCES
France is located near the west end of the Eurasian landmass.
Most of France is located in low lying areas.
France is made up of many valleys, farm lands, and channels.
The main religion that is practiced in
France is Catholicism.
Although Catholics are responsible for a majority of the religion percentage, other religions are practiced such as Islam, Judaism, Muslim, and Protestant.
Some people don't practice any religion at all.
The French Culture was responsible for many great ideas, inventions, and creations that today's society has built off of.
During medieval times, the French were the creators of the first crossbow. This gave them a large advantage over enemies.
The French also were known for their stain glass windows.

In France, the king had all of the power. He made the laws and rules of the land while everyone followed.
The land was run as if everyone had a purpose. Everybody down to a peasant was given a job and that is what they did.

The majority of the population were peasants. Almost 80-90% of the people were put into this social class.
The "social ladder" had three categories. They are the clergy (king), nobles (knights), and the middle class (peasants).
The diagram describes how each class benefited off of each other.
Jobs were based off of a persons wealth.
The richer people often had their own shops such as a baker or blacksmith while the peasants worked for others or they had just enough money to maintain their own business.
Some medieval occupations were a baker, brewer, butcher, carpenter, cook, farmer, gardener, hunter, and weaver.
The economy was mainly based on agriculture and trade.
