Swords and arrows were common ways for soldiers to kill one another in medieval times. Battle axes, maces, morning stars (spiked maces), and halberds were other common instruments of war.

Witches might be burned, drowned, stoned, or hanged. Many criminals in Europe were hanged. Some were stoned or pressed--which means stones were piled on them until they were crushed. Quite a few were tortured to death in various devious ways.

It is possible that flu killed people in the middle ages, but it was not identified as "flu" but something else. Since no medical records were made or kept it is hard to know what people died of most of the time.

Well, in the middle ages, it was mostly unheard of to kill your self. If one did there was probably no punishment since suicide was not a major concern of the state during the middle ages.

Banquets, annual parties, and going to theater. The last one occurred later on in the middle ages, but was still in the middle ages. People who were able to read were also able to do that for enjoyment.

In the Middle Ages, most people were serfs. Some were nobles. A few were people of the middle class, between serfs and noble. There were clergy, who were considered classless, at least in theory.
