I'm considering doing a history-related EPQ, and I've been floating around several title ideas, for example,
'To what extent can it be argued that there was a 'Golden Age' in the 11-12th century Byzantine Empire, and what factors influenced this?'
'What factors most influenced the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476AD?'
Whilst I'm interested in the areas these titles cover, I feel like they are either too vague, or in the case of the second title, too generic. I'd consider doing something on Sengoku/Meiji period Japan, or perhaps something else around the 18th-19th century period Europe (think Napoleon or the unification of Germany for example), but I don't have any ideas for research which I feel are worth pursuing.
Are my original title ideas fine, and if not, are there any others people could suggest for the time periods I've given example of? Struggling with this part of the EPQ doesn't bode well for the later part of the process ;_;
