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.

I loved this course. Having read so many historical novels on Richard III, I was pleased to realise how much of them were actually true.
Sharon Penman, Jean Plaidy and Phillipa Gregory among them.

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.

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.

It was mentioned in a Medieval Archives podcast that I subscribe to. I am enjoying these courses quite a lot, and I was not expecting the layout of the courses to be as easily accessible as they are.

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 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.

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!

Although I thought this course rather brief in its materials, quite an in depth study was provided. The C of E has always intrigued me as I was raised Lutheran and not only enjoyed learning about Martin Luther but Henry VIII- particularily as he was so against Martin Luther's leaning initially. I find it fascinating how politics and religion try time and again throughout history to convince people they are "seperate" entities but are so completely intertwined and almost inseperable.

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.

I LOVED the course! All you need is a computer and you're set. I like that you can keep the transcripts from each module. I think the parts I enjoyed the most were the examples of 'ever day' people. Instead of just focusing on royalty there were countless examples of commoners, middle class people, higher ranking people and of course royalty. Loved that!

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!

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 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.

This course was delightful- very well presented and educational all the while entertaining. I was able to work on this course during my two weeks' spring break over the Easter holiday- all my "free" time- I found myself empathizing with these women of history. Laundry was being done, grocery lists being made, dinner cooking, treats baking, house being dusted and vacuumed, sheets changed...all the while my mind on the next section of this course. Truly I realized that with all the difficulties I think I have running a household (and only for my husband and I and our two himalayan kittens: Shakespeare and Paddington as our three children are grown and gone!), I cannot begin to place myself in the time line of the medieval and tudor women and the amount of work they accomplished every day- without conveniences and with much peril. Thank you for such an enlightening course. I do look forward to many more!

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!

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!

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.
