Many of Marian's blouses are shown to be of modern construction and coloring. Seaming, hems, dotted swiss fabric (fourteenth century), etc.

Character error 

The sheriff alludes to robbing Peter to pay Paul, yet this is a reference to the fact that funds from St Peters (Westminster Abbey) were used to pay for the construction of St Paul's Cathedral in London, centuries later.

Factual errors 

Robin's bow was actually a Longbow; not the bow he uses in the show. A Longbow is, of course, long (about as long as the person using it) and is virtually straight. Also Robin never used the Saracen sword and the movement for a long sword are completely different meaning he actually wouldn't have been able to.
