* AnachronismStew: It's fairly common to see things that invented in the [[TheHighMiddleAges High]] and [[TheLateMiddleAges Late Middle Ages]] such as castles and plate armor to pop up in fiction during this period. Myth/KingArthur is a particularly bad offender in this.

* VestigialEmpire: TheRomanEmpire collapsed in the fifth century, leaving crumbling roads and aqueducts to lace Europe-but only the Western half. [[UsefulNotes/ByzantineEmpire The Eastern Roman Empire]] continued on until the fifteenth century: advanced infrastructure, a literate culture, and a higher standard of living, but in an increasingly smaller territory.

This period heralded the [[AfterTheEnd fall]] and [[BalkanizeMe division]] of the Western Roman Empire (the Eastern half was able to survive as the Byzantine Empire), and the rise of monasticism in Europe. Hollywood monks are pious men, clad in long brown robes, with rosaries and tonsure haircuts. They spend their days dipping feathered quills into inkwells and scribbling strange script into large books by candlelight. That is, when they're not out chasing lusty, busty tavern wenches. Hollywood monks don't take that whole “celibacy” thing all that seriously. Neither, in fact, did the regular clergy; celibacy did not become a requirement of the priesthood until ''very'' late in the Middle Ages. It ''was'', however, mandated in nearly every set of monastic rules, including those of Benedict. It was also a time of interesting contrasts: during this period, Christian and Pagan folklore and traditions were syncretized in the minds of the public, which gave rise to some of the most famous mythologies and legends of the Middle Ages, such as Literature/Beowulf, Siegfried, and the aforementioned Myth/KingArthur.
