I wanted to focus on life in medieval Europe as the topic of my ted talk. I remember doing a research paper on this topic in my sophomore year and I enjoyed doing research on the topic. I would specifically focus on the lifestyle of the average person in this era of time, I feel like it would be a good way of taking myself and my audience on a trip back in time. I would show them the living conditions, Diet, and hygiene of a person living in medieval Europe. I look forward to doing a lot of reading to get a good understanding of how life was back then. Maybe some autobiographies or journal entries talking about living conditions of this era in time could help me show how different times were back then. Some historical paintings that relate to living conditions or anything that could be related to the lifestyle of a person of this era of time could be a good visual aid for my audience to really get an image of what I’m talking about. I don’t think ill find any info that may contradict my topic since I’m not really trying to prove a point. Maybe living conditions are better than what I originally imagined, that would be the only reason why I would feel that my ideas are being challenged, but i will also take it as a learning experience since I know my knowledge on this topic will only increase
