Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth

I’ve just gotten to the part where Aliena and Richard are trying to get money to see their father. The person they talk to, Meg, is clearly black yet it’s never commented at all by our main characters. It’s not impossible for a black person to be in England in the Medieval period but the game does not seem to even acknowledge her skin color. It’s fine to have her in the game it’s just odd that in a time period such as this, no one is surprised to see a black person among them. Am I missing something here?…
