Travian is a free online strategy game, which is based on medieval culture. Be Roman, Germanic, or Gaul and build cities, and their armies, in order to dominate the competition.
You could use this over an extensive period, with a gifted and talented group perhaps. Or, briefly, just explore the aspects that impact on the success of a village, gaining some understanding of what makes a settlement work.
This is something you would need to explore, but is another resource/game worth investigating when looking at historical, & geographical, progress and development.
