At the beginning of this novel, reference is made to someone being "skewered by Protestant bayonets". In fact the bayonet would not have been around as early as 1527. I'm sure the Protestants had various skewering-instruments at their disposal, but these would not have included bayonets. Only in the later 1600s do we see bayonets in use.
