What is something that was normal in mediaval times, but would be weird today?

Public baths. Not on the same scale as they were in Rome, but it was still pretty common to have a bathhouse in medieval Germany and surrounding places to bathe in a group in a large tub of hot, fragrant water, called a “Zuberbad” in German. Now everyone’s all hung up nudity. even among friends, so it’s way less common (although you can still enjoy a public Zuber bath at medieval markets and renaissance fairs in Germanic countries).

Not taking a bath

Leeches, bloodletting and general medical hocus pocus.

Carrying a sword.

Thinking God could save you from the plague.

Oh wait.
