A lot of us are interested and fascinated with life in the Middle Ages, especially since back in Europe between the 5th and 15th centuries the world was very different from the one we know now. Not only that but with how our imagination can run wild, the life the people lived then might have been very different than the things we have taken as fact over the years.
Sure, a lot of the things we now believe to be true about the Middle Ages might actually just be blown out of proportion or exaggerated. Some of the most frequent pieces of information we hold onto today are actually just myths. We have gathered the most common misconceptions about that time period in Europe and saw what historians have said about them, effectively debunking them and compiling them in an easy to read list.
Let us know if you knew about any of these debunked myths about the Middle Ages. Or did we surprise you with something new?
