comment The value of spice trade during the age of exploration
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because before a unified world system and productive capitalism questions about "relative worth" in today's terms are meaningless. Wage-price series don't exist before generalised wage labour, GDP has no meaning when "production" doesn't exist, prices relative to useful things ("gold") are meaningless because of the changing social use of gold and money.

I suspect this is answerable given that we've got Lollardy and the revolt slightly later.

comment Did people use to marry much younger during the last millennium?
Too broad. I suggest you specify median age of marriage in southern England (good data sets).

comment Why did wheat become the dominant food culture?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the question is both too broad and primarily opinion based. It asks for a hypothetical speculative comparison stripped of any historical content.

comment Why have some territorial annexations been rejected by the international community?
Your question needs to be a hell of a lot tighter and not ask "why" questions of states in general, since this requires a political theory in the form of political science. There are at least three questions in your examples, and post-UN is way too broad for a single question, let alone post-Westphalia.
