It’s funny and sort of sad that these misconceptions about the Middle Ages exist (about half of which I probably believed at some point). I think popular culture reinforces these ideas even today, which is why studying Medieval literature is so interesting and important and already, we can see the stereotypes of a believed inferior time in history disproved in our readings. But come on, it’s a little disappointing that vikings didn’t have horns on their helmets, right?
