historic:civilization tagging inconsistency

This page current suggests historic:civilization=middle_ages and then the additional narrowing-down tag historic:period=anglo-saxon ...but that's currently inconsistent with the "main" tag docs here: Key:historic:civilization#Other_cultures which suggest historic:civilization=anglo-saxon

Anyone mapping historic:civilization=middle_ages?

I was looking at creating an example following this tagging scheme: Chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall, one of the oldest buildings in the UK. Aside from the above issue, a couple of other things: It's described as "anglo-celtic" in the wikipedia article, so I put historic:period=anglo-celtic, but not sure if it can more usefully be classified as anglo-saxon for the "period". And more fundamentally, I'm surprised to find I've created the only object using historic:civilization=middle_ages in the UK: How come? -- Harry Wood (talk) 00:12, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
