    My essay title is: What was the significance of the decline in population in the later Middle Ages?


    Am I supposed to talk about the impact the decline in population had?
    Or just how there was a lot of depopulation and the reasons why?

    The word 'significance' always kind of throws me off.

    Thanks in advance.

    I can understand where you're coming from as these sort of questions/'to the extent of' used to be hard to interpret for myself too. However in this case I think it's asking you about the effects the decline in population had, rather than how there was a lot of depopulation.

    Yes - probably best to read it as “Evaluate the effects of...”.

    Just choose and justify your criteria for evaluation based on your wider reading and the rest is easy...

    Good luck
