    The year is 1300, Europe

    If you lived back then, what would you have been?
    Or rather, what would the equivalent of you be?

    - You have to have the equivalent competency (formal or informal) to do your chosen craft or profession. (I.E you can't be a king of even a knight if you aren't a skilled fighter of some kind, and you're not a medieval genius like AverroŽs if you're not a real polymath.)

    - You don't know modern technology, philosophy, (lack of) religion etc.

    - Location Location Location, where would you live?
    There was a vast difference between Moorish Spain and even neighboring France, for example.




    I'll wait and see if I get any answers on this one. Might drop a few theories.

    Probably be a knight or a monk writing manuscripts, or a combo of both.

    Location? Eh either Poland, France or Italy.

    Maybe a painter at best. At worst, some sort of peasant.

    Don't know where I'd live, but if we're going on heritage, probably somewhere in England or Scootland.

    Well, all of the women here would be nobility or royalty since we're literate.

    Of course, we'd also all be long married by early adulthood... or in nunneries.

    Do you know how to farm?
    It's not the easiest kind of work, even on a theoretical level. The physical is even worse.

    I'm a descendant of a King in Ireland around that time (County Claire if I recall), so maybe some sort of noble. Given your comment on the fighting though, either they would see my better qualities and put in a position where I'd maximize my talents or if I was sent to war, I'd get killed because I didn't notice that sword coming towards my head.

    Edit: or I could be the one organizing and planning the preparations for and the plan for battle, designing the castle to withstand an assault and yet be practical on a day to day basis, or designing new weapons systems that would be used in battle.

    Ha, no, I couldn't handle the celibate life. It wouldn't work for me. I'd be married, instead, since that would be my only other option.

    Then again, if I lived in England I guess I could live out in the woods alone with my cats and be a witch.

    Equivalent, not who your forefathers were.
    Based on what you know now, and its equivalent in ancient times.
    Most people are descendants of kings, dukes, popes and whatnot if you look hard enough.

    Complete urbanites without survival skills are obviously not farmers, for example.
    More probable would be store clerks, serving maids, hawkers, thieves... City stuff.
