Well, the average hight HAS increased somewhat, by a few inches I think, but not so drastically as to explain shorter beds or low doorways (conserved heat).  Better nutrition means greater heights are more likely - however yeah - not the foot or so they seem to be going for LOL

I was under the impression that the "they were smaller back then" idea 
had been debunked. Though don't ask me where I got this idea from..

What is the current thinking? Do statistics and physical evidence 
support the idea that the average hight of the "medieval" period 
European was less than that of the their modern counterparts?
