That sounds so cool - I love sci-fi with a mish mash of historical elements. I hope it's going well.

To be honest, I must sound really patronising because I wouldn't have known about the more unexpected aspects of medieval society if I hadn't randomly selected the period after my Ancient Greek phase, but it was really interesting to find how many ideas about the medieval age come from Victorian romanticism more than anything else.

There's a great series by Terry Jones of monty Python fame called Medieval Lives that's a potted summary of counter stereotypes: http://www.veoh.com/watch/v808071CT3amKSR?h1=Medieval+Lives+E01+-+The+Peasant but

I've also learned many intriguing tidbits from the Medieval Review https://scholarworks.iu.edu/dspace/handle/2022/3631 which is the sister list to the Classical Review.
