[show]Goof (anachronisms): As the series is set between 1491 and 1547, the fiddler is a major anachronism for several reasons. His instrument appears to be a Stradivarius design, the basis for most modern violins. Antonio Stradivari was born in 1644. The violin was held against the chest or stomach, not under the chin, until the 18th century. Finally, violin bows looked like small archery bows until the 19th century, when Francois Tourte invented the reverse curve bow.
- Goof (anachronisms): In one episode a man is seen looking out to sea through a telescope. These were not invented till much later, in the seventeenth century.
