I enjoyed working my way through the modules and learned much. I liked the way "asides" were inserted into the text so that reading did not become a chore, more of an enjoyment. Many of my misconceptions and gaps in knowledge were corrected. Thank you.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and only wish that it had been much longer. It reinforced my knowledge from the numerous books that I have read on the subject and I gleaned many new facts. I had not expected the inclusion of the 1984 Trial which I had previously dismissed due to its date (i.e. not having the facts of the most recent archaeological finds) but found it very interesting.
Anthony Cox May 10, 2018
Yes, I did enjoy it. I found the whole course interesting and informative.
Mary August 23, 2016
I found this course extremely enjoyable. It cast a new light on Richard III and dispelled some of the myths I thought were truth. I still have questions but there are just some things we can't know. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in history.
Kimberly April 18, 2017
Very enjoyable course!
Stacy Biccum September 20, 2017
Thank you very much for your email. I did indeed thoroughly enjoy my course. I found every single module fascinating and I loved the way that each queen was linked with a thought provoking theme. I found the lectures extremely enjoyable to listen to and I shall enjoy listening to them again and again.I also found it extremely helpful to have the transcript to read.

I found this course really informative and enjoyable, I have learnt a lot about both the Wars of the Roses and Richard III. The course had much more content then I was expecting in just ten lessons but the half hour lessons were just the right length to listen to one at a time. I look forward to taking another of the Medieval Courses!!
Jennifer April 11, 2016
I loved the course, studying each new topic was a real treat for me after a boring working day, and I didn’t expect to be so gripped
Polina Zemtsevatrista-farnon April 23, 2018
I loved this course! As a lover of medieval British history, I was so excited to find a course on women! Aside from being extremely informative on the lives of women across the social scale, it was also very entertaining! I can’t wait to sign up for my next course!
Jackie Kossoff April 3, 2018
I was very pleased to see the first course from Medieval Courses, “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk”, offers a truly exhaustive and beautifully-crafted look at medieval society... “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk” brings you an extensively detailed and wonderfully diverse overview of medieval society; this is real social history with real stories about real people.
Olga December 30, 2015
I am an amateur medievalist and ate up this course - full hog! Toni Mount presents a delightful and insightful examination of ordinary (tho truly exceptional) lives lived so many hundreds of years ago. Each person is examined as his and her stations in life are exposed and gently likened to "modern" traditions. I loved this course and want more!
Jerice March 7, 2017
The course was wonderful! I learned a lot of new information. I think the course paired well with the other courses offered by Medieval Courses. I also really like the bonus material that was added.
Kimberly April 28, 2017
This course was very stimulating and highly interesting.
Samantha July 21, 2017
Just wanted to say thank you for the above course. Mr Russell did a very good job presenting it. I learned a lot, even more about my favorite queen, Anne Boleyn.
Kathy October 26, 2016
It was great! I enjoyed the history of crime and punishment and especially the individual histories of criminals I've never heard of since I'm in the States. Mary Ann Cotton's case is especially interesting and sad. Interesting, too, that one of the perpetrators was shipped off to Maryland where I live. I always get so much out of these courses and this one was no exception. Thank you for the course!
Sandra Warfield November 13, 2017
I have loved this course and I have learned a great deal. It is well-constructed and very accessible, which makes learning a real joy. Thank you to all concerned.
Angela Blaydon September 18, 2017
A wonderful course full of fascinating detail. This course has brought Anne Boleyn to life for me and it has inspired me to learn more. The modules have been so enjoyable, filled with interesting facts and quotes, that I shall listen to them again and again. Thank you for a fantastic course.
Libby May 3, 2017
The content of the course was well organized. The reader did an excellent job.
Rich January 9, 2017
I absolutely loved everything about the course. I enjoy being able to read and listen to the course material. Each module has been fascinating and with just the right amount of detail. I have loved each module so much that I shall definitely read and listen to the modules again and again. I especially enjoy doing the end of module quiz and I found the family trees extremely useful. I was surprised by the televised trial and I was totally engrossed in it. I loved the video of the poem written by the Poet Laureate. I found it beautiful, thought-provoking and moving. Thank you for a wonderful course.
Elizabeth January 10, 2017
This course was incredibly informative, it told me so much about the crime and punishment law that I did not know, it was awesome.
Charlotte July 28, 2017
I have done other courses through Medieval Courses. I enjoyed this one and felt that it was well paced and informative.
Alison Riseley November 6, 2017
I'm still working on The Warrior Kings which is a challenge with so much to remember! I always enjoy whatever you have to say about any of these great historical topics
Sandra January 30, 2017
Really enjoyed this course
Christine Houghton April 3, 2018
I thought the course was excellent. It gave enough information, but not too much. It was thorough, interesting and I enjoyed having to answer the questions. Again, I thought the balance of the course to be perfect. Many thanks, I genuinely enjoyed it!
Virginia August 21, 2016
I enjoyed the whole course. I learned so much but I didn't know how complicated the subject is. And I was surprised about the canceling of Christmas. Well- planned course and well-written.
Sandra Warfield September 20, 2017
I love the course! I love opportunities that give me the chance to step into the Tudor world and learn, and this is perfect! I love the flexibility, as you guys know I have very little free time. This course gives me the opportunity to learn at my leisure. That is so great for people like me!!!
Laurie January 7, 2016
I really enjoyed this course because it has taught me so many things about women from medieval and Tudor times that are so amazing!! There are so many cool stories in this course...I wonder why Hollywood hasn't made some of them into movies yet!
Thank you!! I very much enjoyed this!
Teri Martin January 22, 2018
I did enjoy the course, thank you!
Diana December 21, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this course and I've learned so much. I read most of the lessons and listened to Claire for two of them. It's very hard for me to remember dates and titles and it is confusing when people are referred to by their place they are associated with instead of their names.
It's wonderful that these lessons are available at all times because a review, I'm sure, will be helpful and supplementary to my own reading and research,
I have signed up for another course since I've loved this one so much.
Sandra August 24, 2016
Extremely enjoyable and informative, thank you.
Wendy August 8, 2017
I really really enjoyed this course and look forward to taking more!:) This is the kind of stuff that I've ALWAYS been looking for! Just perfect
Teri October 18, 2016
It was great
Renee November 24, 2016
Easy to access and full of great information, renowned historian and medieval author Toni Mounts explores the world of the medieval period in her course “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk”.
With the course online and able to be accessed throughout the year you are able to study in your own time, at your own pace, and in the comfort of your own home! With twenty units focusing on different people and occupations of the medieval period there is something for everyone in this course.
Finally there is a medieval course available for everyone no matter where they live in the world!
Sarah Everyday Life of Medieval Folk December 9, 2015
A great and worthwhile course. I will study more on Medieval Courses for certain!
Tonya Osborne-Blake October 30, 2017
I've taken several of your courses. I did enjoy this one very much, as expected. The amount of detail for each module held my interest. Very nice to see the video of Steven Payne in The Pilgrim's Tale module! I followed his pilgrimage via social media as it happened and found it fascinating!
Laticia Wolters March 26, 2018
I was absolutely mesmerized by the lesson on Anne Boleyn's coronation. It was well past time to shut the computer off but I read a paragraph and the "story" of her coronation was so real, colorful and exciting that I couldn't stop reading.
Thank you so much for such professional work that allows me to continue to learn and occasionally find myself back in 1533 as I did last night.
Sandra August 4, 2017
Very interesting information on specific criminals as well as more details about the formation of different police forces and origins of uniform and equipment. All in all a very informative course, which I enjoyed very much.
Angela Blaydon October 30, 2017
Richard III has always been a particularly fascinating historical character to me: the mysteries surrounding his nephews, Richards supposed villainy at odds with his acts as a King, his heartbreaking losses of wife and child, his undying loyalty to his brother....contradictions abound! So this course, as others I have perused, only served to intrigue me further. What I would give to have that moment (or two!) with a contemporary, reliable source!
I was not expecting a decidedly pro-Ricardian stance - not that it swayed or determined any frame of mind I have or questions I have- I was expecting a more "cut and dry" formula. Was rather surprised and pleased to have personal opinion inserted into this extremely well-done and presented course!
Deborah June 29, 2017
I love these courses. I learned a lot from this one and all the others. Keep them coming!
Sandra Warfield August 20, 2018
I liked this course very much and really enjoyed it. I learned so much with each lesson and got from it new information that I'd never read or heard before. My favorite lessons were"The Knight's Tale" and "The Stationer's and Printer's Tale". I didn't expect the videos at the end of some of the lessons, but they were extremely interesting,
November 24, 2016
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, and plan on taking many more from you!
Amanda November 14, 2016
I have done several courses and enjoyed them all!
Laticia Wolter September 13, 2017
Absolutely fascinating - I have learned so much.
Wendy A April 18, 2017
This course was absolutely amazing! I have learned a lot about Richard´s predecessors and about the recent research about his so much deserved reburial. I learn things I have never heard about before, such as the Trial. It really made me consider things I have never imagined, such as What if Elizabeth of york, Henry VII´s wife have had the possibility of seeing the ´pretender´?? That really makes me doubt a lot! This history is fascinating!!
Ivana January 10, 2017
Fantastic, very easy to listen too and knowledgeable. I will be buying more!
Rita Elefteriou October 30, 2017
Wendy Ahl August 20, 2018
Thank you so much for giving me the pleasure of doing this course. It was an extraordinary experience that enriched my love and passion for Tudor history. Thank you for giving an Argentinian as me living far far away from London the possibility of learning and construing more knowledge. In the coming days, I'm starting the Anne Boleyn course too!
Ivana January 23, 2017
Thank you for letting me try out this course during your trial period. I really enjoyed all of the modules (20!) and learned a lot of things I didn't know before. Toni Mount's research is great, and Claire Ridgway's reading made learning a joy.
Tudor Guy Everyday Life of Medieval Folk December 3, 2015
I really enjoyed this course. It was easy to understand and just enough information in each unit to explore the topic and I never felt as if I was inundated with facts and dates to make it too confusing. A good gentle introduction for beginners. I recommend this course for those who are just casually interested in medieval history or as a beginning foundation for those looking to be more invested in this topic.
Amy June 20, 2016
I found this course through FaceBook and enjoyed it immensely! I hope to purchase more of your courses soon, and will recommend them to others.
